NEW!! Ride at a Gallop
Added to the reunion schedule in early April, Ride at a Gallop is a collection of historical presentations, DVD showings, and seminar type discussions given over a multiple day period primarily for those who served in or have interests in the 1/9th Cavalry in Vietnam. In addition to having a dedicated hospitality room (3rd floor room 306) for the duration of the Reunion from 1 pm until about 4 pm daily, the VHPA will provide a section of the main ballroom to the 1/9th Cav for PowerPoint presentations, showing video clips, and having focused discussions. This area is open to anyone attending the Reunion and can accommodate 500 if needed. The goal is several short (15 - 25 minute) sessions each day and to let each troop have at least one slot per day. Here is a summary of Ride at a Gallop activities
Walker Jones is in charge of the Ride at a Gallop activities. Please contact Walker at 662-347-7133 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have something to contribute to these activities.
