9th Inf Div Society Reunion

Postby Niner Delta » Fri Mar 26, 2010 5:03 am

Was reading my latest American Legion Magazine and in the reunions section is a listing that says:

"9th Inf Div Society, Nashville, TN, 5/20/23, Gonzalo Garza, recon6667@att.net"

I thought they were about kaput, hadn't heard anything about them lately and the website doesn't appear to have been updated for a awhile. So I sent Gonzalo an email requesting more information, will post anything I get back.

Anybody have any info about this????????????

I'd be interested in seeing what you find out. Like you, I figured they died from lack of interest.

Vern you might try google,9th ID Society"Octofoil" if that doesn't work ask Steve
to send you the link, and get you to the website and you could join it. If you have
any other question(s) please feel free to call me C#713-299-1094 anytime.

There is this 9th Division Octofoil Association. http://www.octofoil.org/index.php But... they are exclusively interested in WWII.

Then there is the Vietnam version... http://www.9thinfdivsociety.org/ No mention of a 2009 reunion much less a 2010 at that site. However some of the officers from whatever date in the site list seem like the same guys named in the notice of the reunion you mention. http://www.9thinfdivsociety.org/board.html

My guess is that it won't amount to much, whatever it is.
