For the past several years, a small group of Centaurs from Trp D (Air), 3d Sqdn, 4th Cav, and Trp F (Air), 4th Cav has been joining together to honor Veteran’s Day and the men we served with. In the past, attendance has been by troopers who served with either Trp D or Trp F, with an occasional visitor from one of the ground troops. This year, we are welcoming anyone who served with the 3d Squadron, 4th Cavalry to join us.
The gathering will be at the Clarion Hotel, 530 Richards Drive, Manhattan, KS. The room rate will be $94.00 plus tax per night. The room cost includes breakfast. We have set aside a block of 30 rooms for the nights of 9 – 11 November. You can reserve a room by calling 785-539-5311. Tell them it is for the Centaurs Vietnam Group and you will get the special price. The special price is good through 19 October, so make your reservations early. You can always cancel if you can’t make it to Manhattan.
Since Veteran’s Day falls on Sunday, the Manhattan Veteran’s Day celebration (parade and memorial service) will be Friday morning. A tour of the Flint Hills Discovery Center is scheduled for Friday afternoon. Saturday includes a visit to the Kansas Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the museums at Fort Riley, and dinner at the Little Apple Brewery. Sunday’s activities are still being worked on.
If you have any questions about the get together, contact Dale Dow at 785-776-1710 or email at daled at Kansas.net.
