All members of MWSA are encouraged to attend the conference. In addition to a general membership meeting that will enable you to learn more about what’s going on in MWSA and provide you the opportunity to voice your suggestions for the future of MWSA, the agenda will include seminars to improve your skills as a writer and presentations that will entertain and educate you on the military history of San Antonio.
The Menger Hotel is the oldest, continuously operating hotel west of the Mississippi. Teddy Roosevelt recruited his Rough Riders here in the bar that looks much the same today as it did way back then. The Alamo is across the street, the River Walk is two blocks away, and a large shopping mall is a five minute wdalk from the hotel. Check out the hotel’s website: http://www.mengerhotel.com.
San Antonio is rated as one of the top places to visit in the country. If you’ve never been here, plan on spending an extra day or two. Some of you may have gone through Basic Training here with the Air Force, or maybe you spent time at Fort Sam Houston. If so, come see how the city has changed since the “old days.”
More info regarding the costs and the conference will be available soon. For now, please mark the dates on your calendars and plan on coming!
