Welcome to Fort Worth

This ideal location for a reunion offers a unique blend of southwestern warmth, cosmopolitan flair, old-west charm and modern sophistication. The Fort Worth & Dallas area encompasses 384 square miles of rolling prairie, with native pecan, cottonwood and live oak trees. You'll have the opportunity to experience the best of both Fort Worth & Dallas during your reunion. Reunion tours will include a tour of Fort Worth; a city that still embodies the spirit of the old west. Fondly known as “Cowtown”, it's the only city that still drives a herd of Longhorn cattle down “Main Street” twice a day. The Dallas City Tour, features a visit to the “Sixth Floor Museum” chronicling the assassination of JFK. You will also have the chance to go to Billy Bob's, the “World's Largest Honky-Tonk”. Watch for more tour information and reunion details coming in January. The 2009 VP-4 Veterans Association will offer an unforgettable visit to Texas and a great time with your friends and family.
