The Hilton Kansas City hosted two of our reunions this past week. One of them was the 35th Annual Reunion of the 187th Airborne Infantry Regiment Association – known as Rakkasan.
The event started Tuesday with the early-bird arrivals. Attendees continued checking-in on Wednesday and Thursday, and were welcomed into the hospitality room, the center of activity for the reunion. Each morning, attendees greeted each other in the restaurant at breakfast, which was complimentary for our attendees. Thursday’s group dinner buffet featured Kansas City BBQ style meats. Folks stayed busy on Friday with the President’s Meeting, Board Meeting, and special lunch for the ladies. Some took the complimentary hotel shuttle to nearby shopping and restaurants. Saturday’s agenda included the General Membership Meeting and final Banquet.
Armed Forces Reunions, Inc. has handled most of the Rakkasan reunions since 2007. It’s always an honor to plan events for our military!
