The 380th Bomb Group Association Annual Reunion was held in the Boston area from September 29 to October 3, 2004. Lodging was arranged at the Sheraton Braintree Hotel in Braintree, Mass., which is south of Boston.
Activities included the traditional welcome dinner on Wednesday evening, group tours of the Boston historical district and Quincy Market on Thursday, a tour of Lexington and Concord on Friday afternoon, and our Members Meeting on Saturday morning. Our Memorial Service was at Hanscom Field on Friday morning, followed by lunch at the Officer's Club at Hanscom Field.
Boston's role in shaping American history is unique among all other cities. You will be eager to see the places where the American Revolution was conceived and begun. From Paul Revere's House to the Boston Tea Party Ship to the Old North Church, history is on every corner in Boston.
Our tour of Lexington and Concord will compliment our visit to the Boston area. It was on Lexington Green in the early morning hours of April 9, 1775, that Captain John Parker of the Colonial Militia announced "Don't fire unless fired on. But if they mean to have a war, let it begin here." Those words and the battle that followed changed the course of history.
According to the Convention and Visitors Bureau, the average high temperature in Boston for September and October is between 62 and 72 degrees and the average low is between 46 and 56 degrees, so be sure and bring your 380th jacket for the cool evenings.
