Welcome to Seattle
Mountain and ocean views, fresh seafood, great coffee and better wine: What’s not to love about Seattle, the largest city in the Pacific Northwest? The sparkling waters of Elliott Bay, Lake Union and Lake Washington wrap around this city, where shimmering skyscrapers and forests of evergreens coexist. The VP-4 Association Reunion will provide a wonderful opportunity to get a firsthand look at this beautiful city and beyond, whether you begin with an “Early Bird” tour to the city of Victoria, B.C. via the Victoria Clipper’s high speed catamaran, take the a private tour of the Boeing P8 Production facility, or “quack” your way through Seattle by land and by sea on a WWII amphibious landing craft! There will be time too for connecting with your squadron buddies old and new, and their families. Come; share this city and enjoy a terrific 2013 reunion. Don’t be left out!!
