Embassy Suites Hotel




Bel and I heartily welcome friends and shipmates to the 2023 USS Mars Reunion.  The Embassy Suites Hotel in Bloomington is where we’ll be spending most of our time together, and we have a group rate locked in at $119 a night, including a hot breakfast and other amenities.

We have now been to five Mars Reunions and thought it was time to host one in the Upper Midwest.  The Twin Cities and the state of Minnesota have a lot to offer visitors, including the nearby Mall of America. 

If you have never been to a USS Mars Reunion, we strongly encourage you to come and join us in 2023.  You won’t be disappointed.

We are excited and look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones in Bloomington!

Dave & Bel Lilligren
