WE HAVE DECIDED TO MOVE THE REUNION FROM APRIL TO AUGUST 26-29, 2021 TO ALLOW PLANS FOR COVID VACCINATIONS TO TAKE EFFECT.
Start making your plans NOW to attend the DUSTOFF Reunion 2021. We are picking up where COVID-19 stopped us in 2020 by returning to Fort Benning/Columbus, GA. Same hotel. Similar schedule as last year.
The dates are AUGUST 26-29, 2021. The hotel will allow reservations under our room block on the “shoulder dates” – e.g., two days before and after our reunion. Our contract with the hotel requires attendees make their own reservations and be responsible for all transactions regarding room reservations.
To book directly with the hotel please call 706-327-6868 and and use the booking code DST.
We will NOT be bringing the DUSTOFF store to the reunion – so, order early your T-shirts, hats, koozies, coins, and other DUSTOFF items.
Please plan on bringing your masks for compliance with current mask guidance published by the Maneuver Center of Excellence recently. Masks must be worn for all indoor activities when social distancing cannot be maintained and outdoor activities/graduations are limited to 60% capacity.
