    Hi all.

    I stumbled upon this board yesterday while researching other stuff....seems like a huge wealth of information!

    I haven't been to Las Vegas since 1985 or so, when I was stationed in Long Beach. I can't even imagine what it must be like, now!
    Anyways, I'm heading there in September '15 for an anesthesiology conference at the Cosmopolitan.
    Very much looking forward to the trip (wish it was sooner), and integrating myself here. :wave:

    Welcome to the board. You will learn a lot from reading the forums. LV has changed a lot in the last 30 years. Hopefully you will find some time to enjoy it.

    Welcome to the board!

    While The Stardust, Desert Inn, Westward Ho and other classic Vegas casinos are long gone, you'll enjoy the much improved rooms, dining options and drink offerings / options.

    The Cosmo is a great hotel to stay at,with incredible rooms, great bars, a great gambling atmosphere, and a great location.

    The Stardust was where we stayed at at least once...:wiggle:
    It was the tail-end of oldschool Vegas back in those days, lol!
    Can't wait to see it now, especially the people-watching.

    Hi TRUK,

    I was also US Army (Officer) 1999-2008.

    I liked the Army a lot better than the Navy. And I agree 100% about the good old days!
