Do not forget the service men and women serving our country in far away lands. Light a candle for them and ask for god speed to bring them home safely.


Association membership time once again for 2018

We have many who pay their dues annually and some who pay but skip years in between. That is ok but what we are hoping to have those shipmates who have never paid due will do so this coming year for 2016. This is your association, the ship you served aboard, made friends and visited many ports with so why not support the association as the cost is only $10.00 a year. Your membership helps us make donations to various groups, helps with the banquet cost which we donate towards the dinner to make your cost less, a yearly letter to all on the roster, maintain an email list, maintain a web site and help to send out a newsletter to all on the email list. We try to keep in touch with as many shipmates as possible, place a Happy Birthday greeting on the web site and in the newsletter. Our main association contributing factor is comradery with our shipmates. We have officers, board members, an association bank account where the treasurer sends a monthly treasurers report to the officers and board members and any shipmate that is a member requesting a copy of the report.  As you can see we are not only a reunion, join us now, keep us moving ahead. We are here for you, sign up and support us with a dues payment for 2016. Forgot dues send now!

Thee next reunion will be in Bloomington, MN in September, 2018 to be chairded by Jim Feely. wiil publish info when received.

We have a new shipment of hats for those wanting to purchase one.
