This will be a very special year as we honor the Headquarters 29th Infantry Division recently returned from their Spartan Shield deployment in Kuwait. We will also be recognizing our soldiers overseas in continuing 29th Division deployments to the Horn of Africa, Iraq, and Kosovo. In order to maximize this effort, we will be visiting the Division Headquarters at Ft. Belvoir and unveiling a recently completed plaque at the National Museum of the United States Army there.

The gathering will not only be our Annual Convention, it will also be a reunion, telling our historical story to include events since reactivation in 1985. We are counting on many of our former Commanding Generals to attend, along with their CSMs and key staff, to discuss their years leading the Division. This will create the opportunity for a fascinating historical symposium.

Following our business session at the DoubleTree on Saturday Morning, the afternoon will offer multiple presentations and panel discussions.
