National WW2 Museum in New Orleans

The Higgins Hotel
Named for the man whose boat shop built hundreds of landing craft and PT boats of plywood.

Let's not forget the real reason why we have these reunions - we see our brothers in arms that we haven't seen in decades and renew friendships we've built up over the years. In 2020, it will have been 54 years ago that the 281st was organized; then sent to Vietnam. Five years later the company was deactivated. In that five year plus period of time, hundreds of us spent many months doing many different jobs; each and every one of them contributing to the success of the 281st. Join us to honor our absent brothers and celebrate those accomplishments.
