Welcome to the message page of 709th Maint Bn. & the 99th CSB
Tomorrow is my last day in the Quad Cities checking out Hotels and sights to see. Looks like lots to see and good places to stay.
Veteran friendly area. Mike, Le Claire is only 10 miles away so you can see your picker buddy's. I was there today along with doing a tour of the John Deere combine factory.
I saw the Rock Island Arsenal yesterday. These are the two places I am thinking of for our day trip.
I was at a Raddison hotel yesterday, a Holiday Inn tonight and will be spending the night at the Isle tomorrow. Below are links to the sites and hotels for you to look at if you want.
Feedback would be appreciated as I told them I would confirm which hotel in the next couple weeks so we could nail down exact dates.
I am thinking May 20-23, June 3-6 or June 10-13. The paddle wheel boat has a special veterans thing on the 12th of June.
Anyway, feedback would be much appreciated at the earliest. When I get home I will be posting some pictures that I happened to get. I forgot my cord to connect my phone to my Laptop.
Scroll down to the John Deere Harvester Works, East Moline, Illinois link and click on it for the tour.
