WASHINGTON, D.C., here we come!
Our SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY REUNION will be held in Washington, D.C. this October 6-8, 2017.
Planning is well underway with schedules and costs soon to be finalized. We will be celebrating anniversaries for each era:
...for the WW2 Era, a 75th Anniversary,
...for the Korean War Era, a 65th Anniversary,
…and for the Vietnam War Era, a 50th Anniversary.
We are also planning a special Memorial Service at all three of the Washington D.C. memorial sites for these wars. Also, every OCS graduate in attendance will receive a special gift, reflective of your service. We promise it will be a Reunion that you will be talking about for years to come.
Preliminary details are as follows:
HOTEL: Westin Dulles Airport, 2520 Wasser Ter., Herndon, VA 20171. 703-793-3366. Reunion Rate = $109.00, with two breakfasts included. Note that with these two breakfasts the $109 rate is $30 to $50 lower than any other group rate for any other D.C Hotel. Parking FREE. Free Shuttle to/from airport. Free Shuttle to Subway Station. Bus Stop, 5 min walk from hotel. Driving personal cars downtown is highly discouraged because of the impossible parking situation there.
REGISTRATION FEE: $40pp ($30pp, if registered within 30 days of receipt of Registration Packet). Meal Prices are being negotiated but will be in the same range as our previous reunions.
FRIDAY: Welcome Buffet, Association Business meeting
SATURDAY: Bus to Pentagon 9-11 Memorial Site, and then to Vietnam, Korea and WW2 Memorials Sites for a short Reunion memorial service at each (with time to visit at each site). We will be walking between sites, so indicate on your registration form if you need mobility assistance. We will attempt to rent the needed wheel chairs to provide for those who cannot walk those distances (about 1000 yards between each).
Saturday afternoon will be open for limited self-touring…limited because the evening Reunion activities begin at 6:00 p.m. Those who choose to self-tour will have to make their own way back to the hotel.
SUNDAY: Church Service after breakfast. FREE TIME ALL DAY for self-touring. Tour Bus will provide one trip to Downtown, departing at 9:00 a.m. Return to the hotel will be on your own. The details will be updated and posted here as they are known. Check back often for reunion updates!

Reunion Photo Albums For Sister Units
Please Note: Many former units hold reunions, and of course, many of these units had OCS class members assigned to them. If the unit you served in has a reunion and you attend it, send us your pictures, highlight the Signal OCS Class Members, and we'll post it here.
If you are planning a reunion of your own, or just a get together with your old Army Signal OCS buddies, let us know and we will gladly post it here. Send your reunion details to Info@ArmySignalOCS.com. Don't forget, take lots of pictures and send them to us and we'll post a Reunion Photo Album here.
