To the Crew:

Spring has sprung. We have survived another winter and for many it is when we come out of hibernation and things get real busy. Yard work, gardens, firing up the barbeque, golf and fishing among other things and all this has to be worked into our regular work schedule. It won’t be long until Memorial day will be here, but lets not wait until then to remember our Vets and the Men and Women that are now serving.

I am looking forward to the reunion in Reno. Now is a good time to get your tickets if you are flying. I got my tickets a couple of day ago and found some good rates on line.

Reno is close to NAS Fallon the home of Top Gun and tours are available by appointment and should be made well in advance. For more info go to http://cnic.navy.mhttp://cnic.navy.mil/regions/cnrsw/installations/nas_fallon.html

If you have not attended our reunions before, I invite you to join your shipmates in Reno August 23-28, 2015.  2015 Reno Reunion,  Reunion Registration Form

Everyone who served from plank holders to those who sailed her to her decommissioning will be warmly welcomed. Come join us, renew old friendships, make new friends, reminisce the past, see the sites and make new entries into your “fond memories and good times” Logbook.
