Get your free Military Reunion Planning Checklist
We thought we’d share this checklist, which you may request in the right-hand column, as a basis of planning your Navy/Army/Air Force/Marine Corps or Coast Guard reunion. They’re very much alike most of the time, but we do see slight differences depending on when someone served and what they want from their event, such as visiting attractions or developing a great program for your banquet.
One of the most important items on the checklist concerns site selection and negotiating terms and rates with the hotel and attractions. Another section is all about increasing attendance at your event. We think all of the areas addressed on the checklist are things for you to consider and discuss with your committee and members.
How to Plan a Military Reunion?
"First of all...the cruise reunion was Fabulous!! We all enjoyed it so much! It'll be a hard one to follow. Sofia, the cruise group service rep was a real sweetheart and so helpful. She made certain we were taken care of. Our seaside tribute to our fallen comrades was beautiful and our meetings were held in a beautiful lounge the ship provided for us. We were very happy with everything. Thank you so much for your work and help to make this a very memorable experience."
"It was incredible spending time with some of our Arizona based WWII veterans returning on an Honor Flight from Washington, DC where they visited the WWII memorials and were treated with the respect and dignity they so rightly earned. I was honored to be there to pick up my neighbor Sam Molson. Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s WWII veterans for all their sacrifices. They transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to reflect and be honored at their memorials. Holiday Cruises and Tours very own Rick Hardina helps organize the AZ chapter of this wonderful non-profit."
"Hi Brian: I wanted to send you a personal note but in the spring Mrs. Fitz got on a big kick of getting our computer room back in order and everything from past Reunions got shredded, which included your business address, so rather than wait for a reply from you, I've decided to e-mail you. Sorry about that. I wanted to thank you for "Managing" another wonderful and successful Ranger Reunion. I thought everything was outstanding, and run like the professional you are. We all owe you another debt of gratitude. I also want to thank you for the courtesy shown to me; the room upgrade; cheese, wine and cracker welcome; and the use of the Executive Lounge. I didn't rate it, but appreciated it and thank you. I had the pleasure of talking briefly with your wife in the Hotel Lobby Sunday morning while we awaited the Limo to the Airport. Such a charming Lady - you're a lucky man. Looking forward to seeing you again in Jacksonville next October. Thanks again Brian."
