The Association’s 104th Anniversary Reunion & Convention
The 104th 29th Division Association Convention is tentatively scheduled for October 6-9, 2022, and will be held at Ft. Belvoir, VA.
“My first major goal is to make next year’s 2022 Association Conference, our 104th, a memorable event focused on generating comradery and renewing friendships. In many ways, it will be similar to previous annual gatherings, but it will also serve as a “reunion” focused on bringing together thirty-seven years of Division leadership.
I will be personally asking each of the former Commanders to participate, along with their CSMs and as many members of their staff as possible. The National Conference will reunite former Twenty-Niners and allow them to share their stories of building today’s Blue and Gray Division.
Next year’s conference will also provide the opportunity to welcome home members of the current 29th Division Headquarters, serving today in Operation Spartan Shield based in Kuwait. We will look forward to the Division Commander briefing the conference on the Headquarters deployment experiences. He will obviously begin with supporting the Allied withdrawal from Afghanistan in August shortly after unfurling the colors.
In addition, I’m sure there will be a number of other stories arising from their Spartan Shield deployment. So, the next conference of the 29th Division Association will be centered at Ft. Belvoir where we will learn about the latest chapter of “29 Let’s Go!”
Meeting on our Headquarter’s installation and in Northern Virginia will provide numerous opportunities for special tours of the WWI, WWII, Korean War, and Viet Nam Memorials, perhaps even a visit to the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit Mount Vernon and other local historical sites on and around Ft. Belvoir. The highlight will be a function at the new National Museum of the U. S. Army now open on Post.”
