July,12,1969 reunion
Some one told me that they registered at the Courtyard Marriott, but they were given a price above $250.00. When he told them he was part of the Bill Sly group, the price dropped.

After the presentation at the wall is complete and we have taken our pictures, we will be moving to the United States Institute of Peace Building. This is north of Constitution Avenue and west of 23rd St NW. We have that reserved untill 4:30 but we have no agenda set up. we will have a room with air conditioners and chairs This will be free time to either meet new members of our group or go to other planned family events.

After the meeting we are invited to the Charlie and Christine Flickner's home for dinner. There will probably be more that one setting for dinner so no exact time is expected.

While at the wall, there will be maps and directions to all of the locations.

The particulars for the Peace Building are

United States Institute of Peace
2301 Constitution St NW

Sunday July 14,2019

We  have just returned from two days of honoring our fallen from July 12,1969. The two groups that participated were Soldiers that were in the battle and families of the fallen. Most of us arrived at the Marriott/Foggy Bottom on the night of the 11th and we took over an area on the courtyard by moving tables and chairs in a circle and we talked until past midnight.  The next morning we ate breakfast and talked. Shortly after noon on the 12th we walked to the wall in Washington DC. We  took pictures and we had a time to remember at exactly 1:00. to the minute that the battalion stated the first RPG hit out troops.

In order to avoid blocking up the entire area we moved to the statue of the three soldiers. We then walked about 2 blocks to a Government building that Charlie Flickner was able to secure for us. We had about a two hour presentation that involved all of the Alpha and Charlie Commpany's soldiers plus discussions with the families.

We then went to Charlie and Christine's home for a quiet dinner and more talking. As people came back to the hotel we reclaimed our spot and we talked until we were talked out.
