2019 Bole Reunion in Jacksonville Florida - Sept. 2019

The 2019 USS John A. Bole Association reunion will be held in Jacksonville Fl, September 22-26, 2019. We will be joining the National Association of Destroyer Veterans (Tin Can Sailors) at their 2019 National Reunion. We hope that you can attend this year’s Bole reunion.

Because recent Bole reunion attendance has gotten smaller, it’s now easier that we piggyback our reunion with Tin Can Sailors. That organization has made all the arrangements for the reunion. Tin Can Sailors Reunions can be pretty large affairs with numerous other destroyer associations participating.

The reunion will be held at the:
DoubleTree by Hilton, 1201 Riverplace Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32207. For Hotel Reservations Call: (800) 222-8733. The Tin Can Sailors hotel room rate is $115.00 (plus tax) single or double per night. Please reserve your hotel room ASAP, rooms at this price are limited.

The Tin Can Sailors Reunion Registration Fee is $159.00. This fee includes Sunday Luncheon; Wine and Beer Reception; The Reunion General Session; Welcome Aboard Dinner; Farewell Banquet; and our Hospitality Room. The Cutoff Date for registering with Tin Can Sailors for the Reunion is August 19, 2019.
