The WWII Sixth Marine Division Association voted a year ago to hold their next annual reunion close to the Quantico Marine Base so they could visit the Base. My wife, Sharon Woodhouse is treasurer for the association and worked with Petra Carr at the Holiday Inn Quantico who put together a very good 4 day package for our Marine 2013 Reunion. Did I mention these Vets range between 88 to 95 years old? Yes, they do really good getting around considering their ages.
Petra was excellent in her efforts to support our Veterans and assuring their needs were meant. The hotels staff was excellent and very friendly.
Debee and Rafael did an excellent job at the front desk, assuring the veterans room needs were taken care of day and night.
Another excellent job was that by Lisa, Crystal and Jen who assisted the Vets daily in the dining room and bar area's. Tables were moved to fit Veteran needs and assistance getting up and down in seating.
Another excellent effort was that of Pedro and Louis who put up all our reunion signs and setup our tables for all our daily events.
All in all, our Sixth Marine Division 2013 Reunion was a very, big success! It was so successful that it was voted on to have the 2014 Reunion help at the "Holiday Inn Quantico" again next year, 2014.
Well, that was a lot to say but good because the Hotel did a excellent job with reservations, rooms, meals, daily Vet visiting cessions and evening meeting events. Staff was quick to respond to request and maintained a friendly attitude.
The 2013 Sixth Marine Division Reunion was a big success and we are looking forward to returning in 2014.
