We are very excited to announce the 2018 reunion of the 90th Infantry Division Association will be held in San Antonio, Texas, the ancestral home of the 90th Division.

From July 27 to 29, Tough Ombres, past and present, their families and those with ties to the 90th, will gather at the iconic Menger Hotel in downtown San Antonio to celebrate a century of service to our country.

Amazingly, this will be the 100th Anniversary Reunion for the association. Few other military organizations can match the 90th's long and distinguished history.

The 90th's ties to San Antonio run deep. Camp Travis, a WW1 Army post, was situated a few miles from downton San Antonio and it was here that the 90th Infantry Division was formed in 1917. San Antonio is also home to Ft. Sam Houstion for which construction began in the middle 1870s. Over the years, many Tough Ombres have trained on this venerable old post.

The 100th anniversary reunion promises to provide the enjoyment and fulfillment that comes from sharing time and memories with others who love the 90th. There are other reasons to attend as well. This historic southern Texas city is home of the Alamo, the symbol of Texas independence; the Riverwalk, which is often described as the crown jewel of the city; and the Tower of the Americas, the soaring monolith built as the theme structure for the 1968 World's Fair. San Antonio features landmark restaurants servingdistinctive Tex-Mex cuisine sure to please the most discriminiating tastes. It offers an opportunity to learn from our past and a glimpse of the future and is sure to increase appreciation for the rich history of this region of our country.

This historic gathering will honor Tough Ombre soldiers of all generations. Please join us in San Antonio for this once in a lifetime celebration.
