2007 -- 112th Seabees Annual Reunion
Greetings Shipmates, Family and Friends,
The 6th Marine Division Association (Okinawa - WWII) has cordially invited Shipmates and family of the 112th Seabees to their reunion in Norfolk Va., Tuesday 9 Oct. 2007 thru Sat. 13 Oct. 2007. During WWII, the 112th NCB as part of the massive 50,000+ Seabees construction force on Okinawa, occupied Japanese territory secured by the 6th Marine Division. Marines have repeatedly told of teamwork with Seabees - rest assured that you are welcome guests of the 6th Marines.
Norfolk is an excellent location for an eventful and enjoyable military reunion or vacation with many very interesting attractions for everyone. Some tentative activities planned by the 6th are: Memorial ceremony on the USS Wisconsin, Luncheon cruise on the Chesapeake Bay aboard the Spirit of Norfolk, Banquet Dinner with guest speaker (possibly Former USN secretary James Webb) Other local activities organized or on your own, may include: General MacArthur Memorial, Norfolk Botanical Gardens, Jamestown, Williamsburg, USN Base Tours- Norfolk, Chrysler Museum, and Nauticus National Maritime Museum. Some other special interest programs currently in planning stages by Col. Michael Santacroce, USMC, are luncheon on the USN Base and a tour of "Okinawa Hall."
Room reservations may be made directly with the Radisson - 757-627-5555 at the reunion room rate of $89/ night - Tues Oct 9 through Sat Oct 14. An airport shuttle service is available by calling the Radisson at the above number 24 hrs before arrival. The Radisson is centrally located in Norfolk close to most attractions.
