Reunion Information

2017 - Savannah
The 2017 Reunion was 29 May – 1 June 2017.

From Dave Jensen - Immediate Past President and organizer of the Reunion:

I want to thank all those Cottonbalers and their Ladies that were able to make it to Savannah to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the 7th Infantry Regiment Association (Cottonbalers) at our 2017 Reunion. I truly think we honored the Association’s founding fathers with an outstanding event. It was a real tribute to them and to the Active Duty Cottonbalers of the 2nd and 3rd Battalions of the 7th Infantry Regiment to have (40) association members, and (26) spouses register for the reunion, and with family and friends (77) attend the banquet.

Thanks again, to our active duty Cottonbalers for hosting a great day at Fort Stewart. We really enjoyed the time we spent with the young Cottonbalers! My take is that they are as proud to be Cottonbalers as we are. Our prayer is that many of them will join us in the brotherhood of association members in the years to come to continue the work of keeping alive the legacy and traditions of the premier regiment of the United States Army.

Once again, we need to give a special thanks to the ladies of the regiment for all you do! Well done Cottonbalers!

It was especially encouraging, and so much fun, to welcome (8) members and (3) spouses as first-time reunion attendees to this year’s reunion. Thanks to all of you for making this reunion very special. Please plan to join us for many years to come.

I hope everyone had as good a time as Sissie and I did. Now is the time to start contacting Cottonbalers you know and served with about the next reunion in the spring of 2019, location and dates to be determined. Hunt them down, call them, e-mail them, visit them, but get them to come and join in on the fun, all “Cottonbalers by God,” “Damn Fine Soldiers.”

Editors Note: The 2019 Reunion will be in Chattanooga, TN
