The 78th Annual Convention of the US Army 82nd Airborne Division Association: A Call to Camaraderie

As summer peaks in August, the historic and vibrant city of Orlando, Florida, prepares to welcome veterans from across the nation for a gathering of honor, remembrance, and brotherhood. The 78th Annual Convention of the US Army 82nd Airborne Division Association is set to unfold at The Rosen Centre Hotel, from August 14-17, 2024, marking a significant occasion for members of this esteemed association and their families.

A Cordial Invitation to All Members

The President and Board of Directors of the 82nd Airborne Division Association extend a warm invitation to all association members to join this momentous gathering. This year's convention is not just an event; it's an opportunity for veterans to reconnect with their comrades, share stories of valor, and celebrate the enduring spirit of the 82nd Airborne Division.

Why Veterans Should Attend: The Essence of Camaraderie

The essence of the convention lies in camaraderie. For veterans of the 82nd Airborne, this event is a powerful reminder of the bonds formed in service. It's a chance to rekindle old friendships, forge new ones, and share in the collective pride of having served in one of the US Army's most distinguished units. The convention facilitates a unique blend of formal recognition and informal gatherings, offering an environment where veterans can feel at home among those who understand the depth of their experiences.

An Unbeatable Offer: Registration and Accommodations

The convention is not only a call to camaraderie but also a value-packed event. With a registration fee of $195 per attendee, members are promised a memorable experience that includes food, snacks, and drinks in the hospitality room, plus two formal dinners. The association urges early registration, emphasizing a rate increase to $225 after July 25, 2024, encouraging members to secure their spot at a lower cost.

Accommodations have been thoughtfully arranged at The Rosen Centre, with a special rate of $94 per room night (plus tax), a deal extended three days before and after the convention for those wishing to explore Orlando or enjoy an extended stay. With room availability limited, the association advises early booking, especially before the July 10 cutoff, to avoid the increased rate of $106.

Additional Perks for Attendees

The convention experience is further enriched with a 15% discount on select on-site restaurants for registered members. Moreover, those with handicap plates will be provided free valet parking, underscoring the association's commitment to accessibility and convenience for all attendees.

An Invitation to Make Memories

The 78th Annual Convention of the US Army 82nd Airborne Division Association is more than an event; it's a beacon for veterans seeking to relive the spirit of brotherhood that defines their service. In the heart of Orlando, veterans will find not only a convention but a celebration of the ties that bind them, an opportunity to honor their shared legacy, and a chance to make memories that will last a lifetime.
