In 1996 Ron Correll founded the 224th Infantry Association, for which I feel we owe a great debt of gratitude. Ron proceeded to form a reunion for all former 224th members that he could muster. There have been 8 reunions so far. They were at:

            1996 ONTARIO, CA
            1998 COLORADO SPRINGS, CO
            2000 WASHINGTON, DC
            2002 SAN ANTONIO, TX
            2004 VENTURA, CA
            2006 ST. LOUIS, MO
            2008 SEATTLE, WA
            2009 BOSTON, MA
            2010 JACKSONVILLE, FL


Our next reunion will be in PHOENIX, AZ. The date for the reunion will be November 9th-13th, 2011. Ray Fanning will be Chairman for our tenth reunion. To view the informational letter for the Phoenix Reunion please click HERE

For those of you that went to Korea and Japan back in the days of yesteryear the following songs should bring back memories. So click on a song, sit back, close your eyes and drift back to those times so long ago when most of us were still wet behind the ears. They are full length songs so give them time to load. Make sure you have your sound turned on. Enjoy.

image A VETERANS PRAYER FOR

OUR DEPARTED COMRADES
image


O God, by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest, look kindly on our departed regimental veterans who gave their lives in the service of their country in the Korean War and those that passed on in later years. Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of your Son they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom and rejoice in you with your saints forever. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

A Memorial Page has been put together to memorialize those who are no longer with us. The Memorial Page is in two parts. The first part is a list of those killed in action and the second part is a list of those who were members of the 224th Infantry Regiment Association who passed away.
