2016 Reunion Expenses Paid for 461st Veterans!

The 461st Association has enjoyed a very healthy cash position for many years now. The 461st Board of Directors has decided once again that the 461st Bomb Group Association will pay the cost for veterans only of the 461st to include: Registration fee, Group Dinner, Banquet and the Farewell Dinner. The only cost to the 461st veterans will be the hotel room itself and the tours.
