    We’re going to Las Vegas!

    CAT Reunion 2015 ~ October 21-25 in Las Vegas! We are excited to announce Harrah’s Resort, Las Vegas as our reunion venue for 2015. The Reunion committee has worked hard to find a hotel that meets all of our needs, and we think you will be thrilled with Harrah’s Resort, Las Vegas! Harrah’s is right at the heart of the most fabulous city on earth! The resort includes more than 2,500 beautiful guestrooms and suites, 86,664 square feet of casino space, seven outstanding restaurants, a sparkling outdoor swimming pool, a luxurious spa, state-of-the-art health club, a unique variety of retail options and, of course, the entertainment you would expect from a Vegas resort destination such as Harrah’s. The guestrooms, the CAT Hospitality Suite, and the Hotel’s many restaurants, amenities, and entertainment are all located close to each other and are easy to navigate. It’s going to be a reunion to remember, and we sincerely hope you can join us! For inspiration and more information, click: CAT Reunion at Harrah’s to view a flyer (in pdf format) that Lloyd Coleman put together to tell you more about his go-to resort in Vegas! You can also click on the Las Vegas photo above to go directly to the homepage of Harrah’s website. Please make your hotel reservations as soon as possible! IMPORTANT NOTE: It is best to reserve your CAT blocked room(s) via direct reservation web link: https://resweb.passkey.com/go/SHCIV5, since there is a $15 booking fee added to reservations made by telephone (888-458-8471)....

Civil Air Transport (CAT) was an airline founded by Lt. General Claire Lee Chennault, leader of the Flying Tigers, and Whiting Willauer of China Defense Supplies at the conclusion of World War II.  Most of the pilots were former Tigers or other combat pilots from the Asian Theatre.  For the next four decades, CAT, and then its successor, Air America, were primary instruments of American foreign policy in Asia.
