It’s Time to Sign up for Dayton 2022 Reunion

USS Lloyd Thomas 2022 Dayton Reunion

The rescheduled 2022 USS Lloyd Thomas Reunion will be held in Dayton, Ohio from Tuesday, September 20th through Saturday, September 24th.   Carl and Donna Roberts (1969-70) of Washington, Indiana, have graciously volunteered to continue as our local hosts.

When we voted to go to Dayton, we were aware of the Wright Brothers connection, and that the Air Force Museum was located there.   After visiting Dayton to check out the city, we were surprised by the amount of technological innovation the Dayton area has contributed to our lives.  Many advances in aviation, automotive, and electronic engineering originated here.  The Dayton Project was an important part of the World War II Manhattan Project. Wright  Patterson Air Force Base, located near our hotel, has a long history of research and development, and is home to the Naval Medical Research Unit – Dayton.  The Air Force has also recently established a Cyber Defense Research Facility there.

The reunion hotel remains the Holiday Inn at 2800 Presidential Drive, Fairborn, Ohio. The hotel is located in a Northern suburb of Dayton.

The Holiday Inn will honor our rate of $122.00 per night, plus taxes, for three days before and after the reunion.

If you will be arriving before Sept. 20th, or staying after Sept. 24th, the USS Lloyd Thomas Reunion Online Reservation Link will not accept those dates at our negotiated rate.  In that case, you will need to make reservations directly through the hotel at (937) 426-7800.  When you make reservations with the hotel, please be sure to mention that you are with the USS Lloyd Thomas Reunion to receive our contracted rate, and also be counted toward our room/night minimums, even if you are staying on points or have other arrangements.

We encourage you to make your hotel reservations as soon as possible, as the more desirable rooms and any special requests will be filled on a first come, first served basis. You can always cancel if your schedule does not work out.

The number of shipmates with room reservations are what the hotel uses to reserve appropriate hospitality and banquet room capacities.  The hotel will put us in the smallest hospitality room that will hold our numbers.  If too many wait until later to reserve rooms, larger event rooms may be unavailable.

We would appreciate having your events sign-up sheet returned to us no later than August 12th.  We can always handle a late sign-up or two, but the earlier you can submit the sheet, the better.
