Although our Seabee Reunion is still seven months away, now is the time to begin planning and making your reservation for the September 27th thru September 30th, 2018 Washington DC Reunion.


This will be our 19th Annual Reunion.  It has been almost 50 years for a lot of us since we came home. As time goes by, ever so quickly, we all need to take the time and the opportunity to stay in touch with each other whenever possible.


This year we will be holding our Reunion at the:

Residence Inn Arlington Capital View

2850 S Potomac Ave

Arlington, VA  22202

PH# 703-413-1300


  1. Call Marriott Central Reservation ONLY at 1-800-228-9290 and give the agent the following information when they ask:

  2. City/State: Arlington, VA

  3. Hotel: Residence Inn Arlington Capital View Hotel

  4. Note: It is important to give the entire name of the hotel because there are about 5 Residence Inn hotels in Arlington, VA

  5. Group/Event: NMCB 3 VRA or Military Veteran’s Association Reunion

  6. Do Not call the hotel directly. The front Desk does not have the info needed for our group



The rate this year will be $109 plus tax of 13.25%. A full hot breakfast buffet is included. The Hotel provides a complimentary airport shuttle to Reagan National Airport, which runs every 15 minutes. Hotel parking is $20 per day.  There is a complimentary shuttle to the Metro available at the Hotel. You will also get double Marriott points for Marriott Rewards. 


We have a limited number of rooms for three days before and after and for September 27th to September 30th. You can reserve these at the special group rate. If the rooms at the special group rate are no longer available because you didn’t reserve yours soon enough then you may have to pay a higher rate. It pays to reserve yours as soon as possible.

If you would like to register online send an email to me and I’ll send you a link so you don’t have to type all that.´s%20Association%20Reunion%5Ewasry%60mvamvaa%60109.00%60USD%60false%604%609/24/18%6010/2/18%6009/05/18&app=resvlink&stop_mobi=yes

If anyone has information on current members who have died or who have moved. Or information about someone that we could add to our roster, please email, text or send a letter to one of my addresses.  We want to make sure we can honor all who served with us. Your help is needed.  Please print the information clearly.
