Association Reunions

A number of reunions are held during the year by various elements of the 16th Infantry Regiment. By far and away, the largest reunion held each year is that coordinated by the 16th Infantry Regiment Association and usually held in conjunction with that of the Society of the 1st Infantry Division. This reunion is for all Rangers of every era and is held at numerous locations around the country, usually in or near a city of historical interest or near an entertainment mecca.

Westin Kansas City Hotel
Kansas City, MO, 26-30 July 2017

The Regimental Association has recently decided that the regiment will hold its annual reunion about once every 3 or 4 years with the active battalions at Fort Riley rather than with the Society. The next purely regimental reunion will take place in 2018.

Other reunions also take place during the year by smaller elements of the regiment. The Maine Rangers of the Army Reserve’s 3rd Battalion meet periodically in Portland for social lunches.  The Desert Storm veterans of the 5th Battalion hold periodic (i.e., not annual) reunions, typically at Fort Riley. A and D Companies of the Vietnam-era 2nd Battalion hold annual reunions at various locations in the US. C Company of the Vietnam-era 2nd Battalion holds its reunion every year at Branson, MO. All of these reunions serve to build camaraderie between our Soldiers and the esprit de corps of America’s Greatest Regiment.
