Reunion Update


Vietnam Military Police
Sentry Dog Handlers Alumni
2015 Reunion News
The Reunion will take place in Washington, DC from Thursday October 1 to Saturday October 4.
It will be at the Renaissance Washington, DC Dupont Circle Hotel, 1143 New Hampshire Avenue
NW, Washington, DC, 20037-1522 (202) 775-0800. Room rates are $149.00 for Standard Room.
The hotel has agreed to make this rate available for the three days preceding and following the
reunion, depending on availability. There is limited parking at the hotel and several parking
garages nearby all for a parking fee. There is a ton of transportation in Washington…Metro,
Busses, cabs and walking is good for you!
Reservations for the Reunion must be made with Marriott reservations at 1-(800) 468-3571.
Register mentioning: Vietnam MP Sentry Dog Alumni Reunion Oct 2015, Reference : M-
2QM8ZZG. All reservations must be accompanied by a first night deposit or guaranteed with a
major credit card or by WASRW Social Account. Cutoff Date is September 2nd, 2015.
We will have a hospitality room and limited refreshments. There are many free museums and
attractions in DC, so, I’m sure you won’t be at a loss for things to do during the day. Also,
there are many restaurants around DuPont Circle, Georgetown and Capital Hill.
I will be asking for money for the dinner and incidentals, in coming weeks, after I’ve gotten a
better handle on estimated costs.
Please contact me with your attendance information so, we can produce name tags. We’ll need
your name, wife or main squeeze’s name, MP Company and dates in Nam.
Thanks,
Charlie Hahn

Conflicts between VDHA Reunions and Ours


Hi Guys, Just attended a board meeting with the VDHA last night where I presented a plea to the board to have their reunions put back on even numbered years so as not to conflict with our reunions. In 2013, they decided to have a reunion on the same weekend as ours because their 2012 reunion was washed out by Hurricane Isaac in New Orleans. I have been screaming "Foul" ever since and did not attend their reunion even though I am a vice president. I told them I can only attend their reunion this year if we can make some changes. Presentation went well. The change was voted upon and won along with their next reunion not happening until the year 2018. This pissed off a few of the officers but I told them they never should have gone to the odd year in the first place because the Army Sentry Dogs aren't the only toes they stepped on but we are the only ones who protested it the strongest. No more conflicts of reunions now. See you in Washington DC. Ernie Ayala, Vice President of Units, VDHA. P.S. Try to make it to Nashville, TN on Oct 23-25 for the VDHA reunion if you can.

Reunion 2015


Folks I got the below note from Charlie Hahn February 17, 2015. I forgot to post it on the website at the time. Don Ristine 212th 65-67 pointed out to me March 1st. Since then I have been having computer problems at my home. I am having to use my daughter's computer to post this please bare with me. There's been a change of dates for the reunion and also for the hotel. The new date is just one week earlier Thursday October 1 to Saturday October 3. The hotel is now the Renaissance Hotel at DuPont Circle, a Marriott Hotel. This is a bigger hotel and has facilities to accommodate our dinner. Sorry for the change of plans, but I believe we will get a better rate for the new dates. I hope this doesn't inconvenience anybody who might have booked airline tickets. I will definitely have all arrangements by the end of the month. Sorry for this but the weather has been bad and a few snow flakes and DC closes down. Government workers ...enough said!
