"Lasting friendships do not always depend upon long periods of comradeship. The sacrifices, trials and sufferings in the white hot crucible of the Bulge created friendships which will last as long as two men of the Division still survive."
... The CUB, Vol 3, No. 1, August 1946

2016 Reunion -- Sep. 7-11
The Sheraton Pentagon City
The 70th Annual Reunion of the 106th Infantry Division Association will be held from Wed. Sep. 7, thru Sun. Sep. 11.
This year we will hold a combined reunion with veterans, relatives and friends of another division that fought in the Battle of the Bulge -- the 104th Infantry Division.
For the record, ANYONE and EVERYONE are welcome to attend - you do not need to be a veteran or a family member. You can stop by for a few hours or for any or all parts of the reunion. We strongly urge anyone wanting to attend for more than a day to use the registration package at the above link -- even if past the deadline. If it's too late to mail, then call (757) 625-6401 to speak with someone at Armed Forces Reunions. If you are 'really' late, just show up and register when you arrive! The itinerary, at the above link, lists the hours the registration desk will be open. If you don't want to register, you can still visit the hospitality room where the vets hang out. In any case, you must make your own hotel arrangements. Meals and tours require a ticket that comes with the registration, but you may be able to purchase on-site if space is available. If you have any questions, please let us know...

These pages are intended to provide our visitors with information concerning the 106th Infantry Division Association, schedules of upcoming events, links to existing resources regarding the 106th I.D., information on how you can support the Association and other items of general interest.
The Association, founded in August, 1945 at Camp Luck Strike, St. Valerie-en-Caux, France, is the official organization that supports the veterans, families and friends of the 106th Infantry Division.
As we started gathering information to share with the veterans and the people who have a new-found interest in the history of the 106th, we started reviewing old issues of "The CUB". As a start, here are some articles that may provide more insight into the formation of the 106th. Updates will be made as often as possible.
