Dates: September 20 – September 24
Where: Colorado Springs, CO.
Coordinated by Kathy Chavez
Hello from soggy California. We’re finally getting much needed water & snow but way too much all at one time.
We have approximately six months and 10 days until the next Charlie Company Reunion, our 17th. As you know, it is in Colorado Springs, Colorado at the Holiday Inn Airport.
We have had only eight reservations thus far and I really need to have a better idea of how many will be attending. I have reservations for Cox, Crawford, Nelson, Roach, Schiele, and Shyab as well as Jack & I.
The agenda is that we will have Wednesday, September 20th as our arrival meet & greet day. Thursday we will visit the Military Museum. It was requested that we break into two groups is we have a large crowd. So we will visit in the morning and then again in the afternoon. Friday we will have a tour of Fort Carson for 40 people (the funds were cut and so that’s the largest that they can accommodate with transportation) with reservations for Charlie Co vets first, other vets second, and lastly, if there is room, for any spaces spouses, family, or friends.
Saturday, we will have our banquet and remembrance ceremony. I am also working on a group dinner in a local restaurant maybe Thursday night and a possible local American Legion dinner on Friday night.
Each room is $129.00 out the door per night. It comes with a full breakfast (like eggs cooked the way you want). There is a free airport shuttle, free parking, a full bar and restaurant onsite.
Two queen beds, Standard king, or ADA accessible King bed are your choices.
My request is that if you think you might be able to attend the reunion please make a reservation now. We have a contract that allows people to reserve a room but cancel without penalty by August 19, 2023. So if it turns out you are unable to come to the reunion, you can
still back out with no charge. Your assistance would be gratefully appreciated to finalizing arrangements as to how many people might be attending.
Reservations can be made through Kristi Hensley, of Holiday Inn Airport by phone at
(719) 380-8516 x582 or email email@example.com with your credit card number and room reservation. Credit card will not be charged if you cancel by August 19th.
I am finally on the mend from my tumble and can finally walk around not looking like Quasimodo. Really looking forward to seeing all of you and creating some more memories with all of our Charlie Company family!
The 2023 Charlie Company Reunion in Colorado Springs is set!
Our dates are Wednesday, September 20 through Sunday, September 24, 2023.
We will be at the Holiday Inn Colorado Springs Airport, 1855 Aeroplaza Dr.
Shannon Petty, Director of Sales, has made us an outstanding package for the event.
Each room is $129.00 out the door per night. It comes with a full breakfast
(not off a menu but a breakfast buffet). There is a free airport shuttle, free parking,
a full bar and restaurant onsite. The restaurant offers catering so we have a free
banquet room and are able to set up the Saturday late luncheon/early dinner through the hotel.
The room rates are good for 3 days prior and 3 days after the event so we can
make it a vacation as well as reunion if you prefer.
Shannon will be your official coordinator for room reservations. Contact her directly
by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (719) 380-8516 x582.
The “cutoff date” for making reservations is August 20, 2023 at 5 pm
Colorado Springs time. Any reservation after that date will be at the discretion
of the hotel for rate and if there is space.
Still working on our visit to Fort Carson. Will give more information as I have it.
