2017 Italy Reunion Information

Chapter 173 is looking forward to hosting the "Sky Soldier Festa Italiana " in Vicenza, Italy from Tuesday July 4, 2017 thru Saturday July 8, 2017,

The 2017 Italy Reunion will be a little different than others in that the registration fee is only $99.00 per person instead of the $173.00 per person.  This is restricting several things that have always been done.  We will not be having a “goodie” bag when you sign in.  The purpose is to lower the registration fee to encourage larger attendance. In the past, a lot of members complained that they didn’t want a t-shirt or a challenge coin or a coffee mug or a baseball cap, etc., so we have made those items optional for those that would like to purchase them in addition to the basic $99.00 registration fee.

 You are all invited to come celebrate the 100th Birthday of the 173rd Infantry Brigade.  We will also be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Battle of the Slopes, Dak To, and Junction City.  2017 also marks the 10th year anniversary of The Herd’s deployment into AO N2KL, Afghanistan.  The celebration will take place in Vicenza, Italy at the Vergilius Business Resort and Spa and on Caserma Del Din, home to nearly 3500 Sky Soldiers. 

Vicenza is a city in northeastern Italy. It is in the Veneto region at the northern base of the Monte Berico, where it straddles the Bacchiglione River. Vicenza is approximately 37 miles west of Venice and 120 miles east of Milan.  Vicenza is a thriving and cosmopolitan city, with a rich history and culture, many museums, art galleries, piazzas, villas, churches and elegant Renaissance palazzi. With the Palladian Villas of the Veneto in the surrounding area, and his renowned Teatro Olimpico (Olympic Theatre), the "city of Palladio" has been enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994.
