All veterans of any branch, their families and friends are invited to participate in the fourth annual “Sand in Our Boots” WWII Veterans Reunion and Recognition event slated for December 6-8, 2002 in Miami Beach, Florida. The weekend will commemorate those stationed in Miami Beach from 1942-1945. Two groups spent time in Miami Beach during WWII. Nearly 500,000 troops trained in the Army Air Corps Technical Training Command (AAFTTC).
In addition, troops returning from overseas combat duty were processed through the Army’s Redistribution Station on Miami Beach. The 2002 reunion will include activities of interest to anyone interested in WWII or who had parents or grandparents who served during WWII, not just the vets. Contact Dr. Judith Berson-Levinson, Edison Hotel South Beach, 960 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach FL 33139; 305-531-2744; [email protected].
