14th Infantry Regiment Association


May 7, 2014

Dear Fellow Golden Dragons,

Once again our annual reunion is fast coming upon us.  This year I hope to see as many of you as possible in Seattle, where we will join our comrades of the 25th Infantry Division Association for a five-day reunion at the Seattle Airport Marriott Hotel. 

Itís always a pleasure to get together with others who shared the same or similar experiences in World War II, Korea, peacetime, Vietnam and the current era.  Regardless of era served in, we are all brothers in arms. 

The Internet is a wonderful tool for recruiting new chapter members.  When you are online with your 14th Infantry buddies, ask them to join the chapter.  Registration information is here on this website.

The 25th Division Association has planned several activities for the reunion, including a tour of the Boeing factory and a Seattle Mariners vs. Houston Astros ball game.  For those who have their own transportation or plan to rent a car, there are numerous historic and natural wonders to see in the Seattle area.

Next yearís reunion will be combined with the 4th Infantry Division Association in Springfield, Illinois.  This will be an opportunity to get the 1st Battalion Golden Dragons who served with the Ivy Division back together again with the 2nd Battalion Dragons who served with the 25th Division.  Please mark your calendars for this historic event.

Items of interest to Golden Dragons will be for sale at the Parallel PX operated by Rich Ruozzi.  Posters of the 14th Infantry in action during the Boxer Rebellion with CPL Calvin P. Titus holding the colors atop a wall surrounding Peking, China in 1900, will be for sale.  A framed copy will be auctioned during our business meeting.

I look forward to seeing you all at our reunion.

Golden Dragons, Sir!

President, 14th Infantry Chapter
