The 2020 USS Lloyd Thomas Reunion will be held in Dayton, Ohio from Tuesday, May 5th through Saturday, May 9th. Carl and Donna Roberts (1969-70) of Washington, Indiana, have graciously volunteered to be our local hosts.
When we voted to go to Dayton, we were, of course, aware of the Wright Brothers connection, and that the Air Force Museum was located there. When we visited Dayton to check out the area, we were surprised by the amount of technological innovation the Dayton area has contributed to our lives. Advances in aviation, automotive and electronic engineering came from here, and 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 will be the Holiday Inn, Fairborn at 2800 Presidential Drive, Fairborn, Ohio 45324. The hotel is located in a Northern suburb of Dayton. We encourage you to make your hotel reservations as soon as possible, as the more desirable rooms and any special requests will be filled first. The hotel will furnish a complimentary Breakfast Buffet for those staying at the hotel under the reunion rates, and they are also offering complimentary Wi-Fi, Business Center Services, and Parking.
