TRANSPORTATION TO THE REUNION AND GETTING AROUND DC ON THE METRO RAIL.
Reagan National Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Airport are more distant from the Sheraton than Dulles, but limo services to Tyson's Corner are readily available. If the Silver Line is completed on time, you should be able to take the Metro from Reagan National Airport directly to the Sheraton, starting on the Blue Line, transferring to the Orange Line at Rosslyn, and then to the Silver Line at East Falls Church. It's much cheaper than a limo ride but maybe a little slower. If you arrive mid-late afternoon/early evening, you'll have to deal with rush hour crowds that will be going the same direction you are from Reagan National Airport so plan on possible delays. Bring greenbacks so you can purchase a Metro ticket at the automated kiosks. I don't think the Silver Line all the way to and from Dulles will be completed in time to take the Metro from Dulles, but a cab or limo ride is a straight shot to the hotel on the Dulles Access Road.
(You had better double check this set of directions, however. The last time I tried to coordinate transportation was at the Sacramento Reunion. Lindy and her husband offered to give me a ride from the airport to the reunion. We spent about 20 minutes on our cell phones trying to locate each other in the airport only to realize that I was at the Sacramento Airport and they were at the San Francisco airport :-)
Washington Metro System Map - The Silver Line, which will have a stop across the street from the hotel, is scheduled to be completed by reunion time.

According to the Metro website, we're all (groan) eligible for a discounted senior "SmarTrip Card," which provides fares at a discount. Here's a link to purchasing one of those: http://www.wmata.com/fares/smartrip/senior.cfm
Below is a list of locations where you can purchase senior cards:
Metro Line Commuter Stores in Virginia
I think the Crystal City store is the nearest to Reagan National Airport. You will have to disembark and reboard after you buy the card.
Commuter Store at Crystal City Underground Mall
Ballston below is one stop before you have to switch from the Orange Line to the Silver Line.
Commuter Store at Ballston
Rosslyn Center below is where you will have to switch from the Blue Line to the Orange line so it may be more convenient to buy your card here.
Commuter Store at Rosslyn Center, Mall Level 2
The Tyson's-West Park station below, I believe, is one or two stops beyond the stop for the Sheraton.
Store at Tysons-West Park Transit Station
Pictures from Google Earth to give you an idea of the reunion location.
PS: 8338 Leesburg Pike, Vienna, VA, is the location of the nearest Virginia ABC store. Beer and wine can be purchased in grocery and other food and drug stores, but liquor must be purchased through these state stores in Virginia.
Dulles Airport and Sheraton.
Sheraton in relation to the District of Columbia.
If you arrive at Reagan National Airport, as you come out of the Pentagon tunnel on the Metro Rail Line, or if you take a limo, as you get in the vicinity of the Pentagon, look to the west for views of the new USAF memorial, just to the west of the Pentagon, above it on a hill.
Here is a link to it: http://www.airforcememorial.org/AirForceMemorial/Home/
It's hard to miss. It's main feature is a recreation of the famous Thunderbirds' "starburst" maneuver featuring three massive stainless steel curved columns rising 270 feet above the landscape.
If you haven't been to DC before, your head is likely to be on a swivel as you move through that area because virtually everywhere you look, you'll be seeing some of the prominent DC landmarks, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the Capitol Dome, the entrance to Arlington National Cemetery, and possibly the Iwo Jima Memorial, just to the north of Arlington.
If you have a good window seat on your flight, and if the weather is clear, you will probably get some great views of the city as your flight approaches Reagan National Airport.
Manassas National Battlefield Park - About 30 miles from the Sheraton.
Antietam Battlefield in Sharpsburg, WV, about 60 miles from the Sheraton.
Gettysburg Battlefield about 80 miles from the Sheraton.
Harpers Ferry about 50 miles from the Sheraton.
George Washington's home, Mount Vernon, relative to the Sheraton.
USEFUL LINKS FOR REUNION ATTENDEES
Tyson's Corner which has a (giant) shopping mall, where the reunion will be held: http://www.shoptysons.com/
Northern Virginia and the DC area have far more tourist attractions and historical sites than you can pack into the few short days of the reunion, but if you are interested in some truly unique sites, here are links to a few of them:
Manassas National Battlefield Park (Where the First and Second Battles of Bull Run were fought - First and Second Battles of Manassas if you are from the South: http://dc.about.com/od/nationalparks/ss/ManassBattlefld.htm
Civil War battlefields within a 30 minute -2 hour drive of DC: http://dc.about.com/od/walkingtours/tp/NationalBattlefields.--Mf.htm
