98th Annual Reunion of the 29th Division Association

The 98th Annual Reunion and Convention of the 29th Division Association will take place in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on 20-23 October 2016.

The Radisson Hotel Harrisburg in nearby Camp Hill, PA is the site for our annual event. Room rates are $119.00 plus tax. Each additional guest is $10 extra. Breakfast is included in the room rate each morning.

Our keynote speaker will be Brigadier General Lapthe Flora. BG Flora is a veteran of the 116th and 29th Infantry and the adopted son of a first-wave 29er on Omaha Beach. He is also the first general officer that was a Vietnamese boat person.

Joseph Balkoski will be holding his annual World War II Symposium and 2016 will mark the return of the 29th Living History Group after a many year absence.

The Living History Group does reenactments and living history and will be setting up some displays as well as a talk on the Omaha Beach reenactment they participate in every year in Ohio.

Reservations must be guaranteed with a credit card or one night’s deposit by check or cash. Check in time is 3 p.m. and check out time is 11 a.m.
