The 16th Infantry Regiment Association is a Department of Defense Commemorative Partner for the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War Commemoration
A Message From The President…
As you’re aware, we started the year with a fund drive for the family of SGT Daley of 1-16 Infantry. The family’s house at Fort Riley burned in January and Association members rallied to contribute more than $1000 to the Daley recovery fund. Our Board contributed another $1000 on behalf of all members in addition to that effort. In February, the active battalions began returning home and by the end of March, all elements should have closed on Fort Riley. The 2nd Battalion will be holding their annual ball on 2 April in Manhattan which I will attend to present the Association’s annual leadership awards to five outstanding soldiers of the battalion. As you know, the DMOR/HMOR investiture for 2015 will be held 29 April-1 May in Manhattan at the Four Points Hotel. I invite all Association members to consider attending this superb event and help congratulate this year’s designees. There is additional information for this and other events in the April issue of the Dagwood Dispatches. The dedication of the Regiment’s Vietnam War Memorial has been moved to 1 May at Fort Riley (see this link to see the memorial: http://16thinfassn.org/?page_id=1982). This was done to limit the number of trips to the heartland this spring and make it more convenient for all to attend. The dedication will be done in conjunction with the DMOR investiture and the inactivation of the 2nd Battalion. Finally, I encourage all members to attend the reunion of the Society of the 1st Infantry Division 17-20 June in Lombard, IL. This will be a superb event and will be well-attended by our fellow Rangers and other BRO members. I will see you there!
