It’s that time again, folks, the USS TARAWA Reunion at Sam’s Town in beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada.  This year’s Reunion will be August 6 (arrival date) to August 10 (departure date).  This year we are going to be a little more informal, no formal dinner or Opening and Closing Events are planned.  It will be just Shipmates getting together, enjoying  each other's company, swapping sea stories, and relaxing in one of the most exciting cities in the Nation.

Rooms have been blocked out for us for $39.00 + $11.29 Resort Fee + 13% tax per room/per night.  You can call and make your reservations now using the Group Name USS TARAWA and the Group Code A8USC08.

One of the events in the works is our Top Gun Shooting Even at our normal Indoor range, or if available and depending on attendee desire, an Outdoor Long Range (up to 960 yards) shooting using 2 different long range rifles.  While these are not near the Military Sniper Rifle type, they are a lot of fun to shoot.  Details will come as we get closer to the event.

To help with room management and other event planning, please let me know you will be attending.

Yes, I am.  I'm fighting with FB right now.  I guess I'm technically challenged.  I will also have it posted on the HullNumber website that Rick posted.

I always posted it on tarawareunion.com. I will copy and paste it on tarawareunion.com. I suggest you post it on our Facebook reunion site. The reunion will then be on three Internet sites.

Steve, I pasted the information on http://www.tarawaforum.com. I also included email link to you since you asked people to contact you to let you know who is attending. If you would rather have them contact you a different way instead of email, let me know.

Awesome!!  So glad you guys are coming.  I will post a list of folks that have expressed interest in coming in the next few days.  Work, home issues, and ER visits have taken up a lot of my time.  Stand by.

Public Service Announcement:  Kidney Stones.  Don't get them.  For the last 2 weeks, I've spent 28 hours a day in pain.  Non stop.

Ok, back to your normal news feed 😉

p.s.  Stay hydrated, and stay low salt/sodium.

Doing a lot better now.  If these are the "Golden Years", I'm so screwed!!  

Ok, there have been a lot of wishy-washy replies, so I think the only way I will know for sure is to call Bev at the Hotel tomorrow and ask who all reserved rooms.  Like I said, I'm getting wishy-washy emails...  yeah, it sounds good, but I don't know.....   or hey I will be there, if I can find a cheap flight....   or even....  hey can you get the rooms cheaper because I have to fly a long way....   or  ... since you are not having a full event, can I get a free room instead?.....

I will update you all shortly.
