1967 - 1971
198th INFANTRY BRIGADE
UNDER THE SOUTHERN
Will be held in Virginia on April 9-11, 2019. It was decided not to go to Lexington because the prices were really high and
facilities were not particularly suited for our reunion.
It will be held in Charlottesville, Va. which is about 40 miles north of Lexington and full of history. The airport is
only 10 minutes out of town. We have booked a block of rooms at the Omni Charlottesville Hotel, 212 Ridge Mcintire Road, Charlottesville,
VA. 22903. Room cost will be $ 143.75 per night including taxes. This is a 4-star hotel which is centrally located. Go out
the back door and you are in an area that has shops, restaurants, and other places of interest. We have a room to gather plus
a room for our banquet on Wednesday evening. We have a block of 20 rooms that are available Tuesday-Thursday and we have rooms
at that rate on Monday and Friday. They will do a buffet for us on Wednesday evening.

This web site was made possible by the many contributions from the different
men who served in Charlie Battery. The main purpose of this web site is to tell the story of Charlie Battery and
the things that the battery and it's men went through during the Vietnam War. The things that you will see and read
have some historical value about this Artillery Battery. The story is not finished by any means. Someone new comes
along all the time and the story becomes more complete. There are 'no war stories' of exaggeration told here just the
facts. This site is dedicated to all the men who were in Charlie Battery and fought
"Under The Southern Cross".
The web site has 89 pages and over 800 plus pictures. It
takes some time for some of the pages to load. It is well worth the wait. Use the navigation markers at the bottom
of each page to see the entire site. Turn up your speakers and take a step back in time.
