Help Spread the Word about the RTC Orlando Reunion!

We are developing tools to help publicize and promote the RTC Orlando Reunion 2018. You can help by printing business cards and flyers, using social media to announce the reunion, and making sure other Navy veterans get the word.

Business Cards

Our business card includes all the basic data about the reunion and where to go for more information. It’s grayscale only (no color) and blank on the back so you can add your own contact info if you wish.

Download the PDF (300KB) and print ten cards at a time on business card stock. We suggest Avery business card stock #88220 or equivalent, which is available in most business supply stores like Staples and Office Depot. NOTE: Be sure to use the “Actual Size” setting when printing (instead of “Fit to Page”).

RTC Orlando Reunion Flyer

RTC Orlando’s Goal: 50 Participants

The Central Florida Navy League (CFNL) will host the 9th Annual Wounded Warfighter Lone Sailor 5K/10K on April 14, 2018 at Blue Jacket Park in Orlando, Florida. The CFNL will dedicate the new Blue Jacket Recruit Statue that day, too.

“Honor Orlando’s rich military heritage and support our wounded service men and women at the 9th annual Wounded Warfighter Lone Sailor 5K/10K.”

More information and Registration

RTC Orlando Reunion has a goal of 50 participants in honor of and to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of RTC Orlando. Please sign up for our team, “RTC Veterans.”

  • Yes, you can sign up just for the swag (medal & t-shirt).
  • If you plan to run/walk/roll the race in person, choose “Military 5K” or “Military 10K.”
  • If you can’t be at the race but will be at the reunion in October, choose “Military 5K” and we will collect your race packet/swag and give it to you at the reunion.
  • If you want the swag mailed to you, choose “Virtual 5K” or “Virtual 10K” at registration and use our exclusive virtual race discount code RTCRunners2018 to get $5 off!

Dress Code for the Navy Ball

We want to respect our hosts, the Central Florida Navy League, and the traditions of the Navy Ball, so the dress code is important. Please use these guidelines to plan for the occasion.


If you are retired from the Navy and wish to wear your formal dress or dinner dress uniform, please follow US Navy Uniform Regulations (NAVPERS 15665I), Section 10, Article 61002. Grooming and weight standards must also meet those of active duty personnel.


Veterans and Guests

You may wear formalwear (civilian dinner dress or black tie, which means a tuxedo with a dark bow tie) or a dark suit with a dark necktie.

EXAMPLES: Tux with black tie, dark suit

tuxedo dark suit

What NOT to wear:

EXAMPLES: Prom-style or sports jacket

White tux sports jacket


Veterans and Guests

Formalwear, also known as evening wear, consists of a full-length or tea-length (below the knee) dress in good taste and not overly revealing (no plunging necks or backs). Cocktail dresses are normally too short or revealing to fit in this category. Sleeveless is acceptable but strapless is discouraged. Alternatively, a blouse and skirt set in full-length or tea-length is appropriate, as is a pantsuit—as long as it is formal in nature.

EXAMPLES: Full-length, jacketed, tea-length, formal blouse and skirt set, or pantsuit

Justice for RTC Orlando Shipmate Pamela Cahanes

We would like to post on behalf of our RTC Orlando shipmate, Pamela Cahanes, whose life was brutally taken from her the day after she graduated RTC Orlando in August, 1984. Her case is still a cold case. Anyone who knew Pamela and can provide any information whatsoever is urged to call Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477 or Seminole County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Robert Jaynes at 407-665-6650.
