 Reunions

The 808 tank destroyers have had an annual reunion for many years. The first reunions were just a hand full of men living near one another. Over the years more and more of the 808ers attended the reunions. They took turns hosting them so that travel time and expenses were shared. Today the 808th family has grown to include not only the vets and spouses but also their children and grandchildren who attend the annual reunions. Of course we always encourage any interested persons to attend our reunions and they often do.


Past Reunions

The table below is a listing of all of the official 808 tank destroyer reunions. The underlined locations are a link to information about and pictures taken during that reunion.

As you can see we don't have pictures for a lot of the reunions. If you find any at all I would love if you would share with the 808th TD website. Contact me.
