2020 Reunion Expenses Paid for 461st Veterans!

The 461st Association has enjoyed a very healthy cash position for many years now.  The 461st Board of Directors has decided once again that the 461st Bomb Group Association will pay the cost only for veterans of the 461st to include: Registration fee, Group Dinner, Banquet and the Farewell Dinner.  The only cost to the 461st veterans will be the hotel room itself and the tours.

USA line

It is recommended that you reserve your room early.  We have a good sized room block but we ended up running out of rooms last year as too many people waited until close to the reunion time to book and no more rooms were available.  IF YOU BOOK A ROOM AND FIND LATER THAT YOU MUST CANCEL, YOU MAY DO SO WITH NO PENALTY UP TO 24 HOURS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL.  So please, PLEASE, book your room now so if we run out of rooms in the block again, there will be time to add more.

The Bomb Groups reunion is coming up in September. By now we have all heard much about Coronavirus and you may be concerned about registering to attend. However, with six months until the reunion, we are hopeful that this will pass and there are no plans to cancel the reunion. Should you register and find that you cannot attend, you can receive a full refund. In addition, your hotel reservation may be cancelled with no penalty up to 48 hours before your arrival date.
