Big Red One LRRP-LRP-Ranger Unit Brothers, Sisters, Families and Friends:
I am pleased to announce that our next Reunion has been set for 15-19 June, 2016. Our host, Jerry Davis, has selected as our host property the Hilton-Lisle/Naperville, located in the city of Lisle, Illinois. This property is located about 20 miles west of Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, 25 miles from Chicago’s Midway International Airport and only 5 miles from the First Infantry Museum at Cantigny, in Wheaton, Illinois. Any family or friends of our unit’s veterans will certainly, as always, be welcome and we encourage you to bring them along. We hope also that this year, for the first time, to have attendees from our successor 1st Infantry Division Long Range Surveillance Detachments. Any veterans of D Co./101st MI (LRSD) or F Co./52nd Inf. (LRSD) and their families and friends will be very welcome and are encouraged to attend. For those who have never visited the 1st Infantry Museum in Wheaton, which houses a dedicated LRRP-Ranger section, that alone should make it worthwhile to attend this reunion.
This is our unit association’s third “Mini-Reunion”. The two previous ones—2012 in Lake Arthur, Louisiana and 2014 in Fort Worth, Texas were fun, well-attended events. Come help us make this year’s event as successful as the previous ones. No official association business will be conducted and the only current item on the agenda is a visit to the 1st Infantry Division Museum. The rest of the time will be spent as we all see fit. Just a relaxing, enjoyable time getting reacquainted and, hopefully, meeting some of our LRSD Vet brethren. Please plan on attending.

Full hot breakfast buffet for up to two guests per room Hospitality room for duration of the event with purchase of Saturday night dinner (details/price to follow) Complimentary self-parking on property, and the following in the hotel
