The Association recognized the completion of it's second decade of reunions with a gala four-day event held in the Radisson Hotel, Atlanta, GA from September 1 through 4, 1994.  Special recognition was given to the 50th anniversary of the invasion of Europe that had begun on June 6, 1944.

Sessions were held in the Quality Inn in Lake Wright, a Norfolk suburb..

Special events notably included a tour of Fort Benning which after 50 years must have had a few eye-openers but plenty of nostalgia as well.  For the first time, a keynote speaker graced the Memorial Breakfast as the Honorable Max Cleland, Secretary of State, State of Georgia addressed the members.

Again a variety of tours were made available although not documented here.  The ladies, however, were directed to the shopping centers in the immediate area. Certainly more than a few having made their way through these stores returned to the hotel with bulging shopping bags.

Special note was made of "Happenings" that included two professional baseball games (Atlanta Falcons vs. Philadelphia Phillies (note the misprint of "Philadelphia Eagles" which is a football team)  and the Falcons against the Los Angeles Dodgers). both a Jazz Festival and an International Music Festival as well as an opera.

The Atlanta Blue Notes provided live dance music after the banquet on Saturday evening.
