I was wondering if the general membership of this association has any say on where the reunions will be held. Strictly my thoughts, I'd like to see the next reunion (2010) be held on the West Coast at one of five places, not necessarily in the order I write down.
San Diego: MCRD San Diego, MCAS Miramar, and Camp Pendleton in the area makes this site a very attractive place for our get-together.
San Francisco: The Marine Memorial Club and the naval bases in the area and the tourist attractions in a very compact and easy to get around city might make this place a good reunion site. And the Golden Gate, which was the site of many farewells and welcome-homes.
Seattle: Very convention-oriented city, beautiful setting, the Sound, the Cascades, the Olympics, Boeing Aerospace Museum, Sand Point, Bremerton. If you haven't been there, you'll love your first visit.
Anyway, just my thoughts.
