The Year in Review

Regimental Rendezvous

The Association made a few changes this year. Instead of holding the Regimental Rendezvous at Camp Grayling we partnered with the Michigan Ranger Base (the Michigan chapter of the Army Ranger Association) to conduct it at ‘Winne Acres’, the Home of the Base near Marine City.

The afternoon started with firing on two ranges. There was amble opportunity for firing both pistols and rifles. Our Rangers came prepared and every one had a good time.

After the ranges were closed the bar was opened and everyone tried to outdo the other with “jump lies.” Pieter Winne did a great jump preparing a wonderful dinner. Some of our guys stayed overnight and carried on the fun until the wee hours.

Regimental Reunion Dinner

We relocated the venue of our Reunion Dinner from the Bruce VFW Post to Bakers of Milford. This is a more centrally located site and we saw some improved participation as a result.

We made a last minute change to ditch the buffet and order from a special menu. This seemed to be a good change and most were happy with their selections.

Retired CSM Andy Albright was our guest speaker and entertained us with stories about the unit from his perspective.


VA Benefits

I don’t know if you guys are aware of it but you can get both eyeglasses and hearing aids through the VA. You do NOT have to have a service-related problem to get this benefit.


Veterans Day Discounts

Happy Veterans Day! Veterans Day is celebrated this year on Monday, Nov. 11, 2019. The Federal Holiday will be on the same day.

Many restaurants and companies thank our veterans each year by offering them discounts or a free meal.

To those companies offering veterans a free meal or discount, the military community gives a collective thanks!

By using the link below you’ll find a continuously updating list of this year’s restaurant offers for veterans. Last year over 100 restaurants participated. Most restaurants announce offers at the end of October, up through Veterans Day.
