Thank you for your support. We had an excellent reunion in Cleveland, that included tours of the USS Cod with a memorial service for our brothers who are no longer with us. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame topped off by a wonderful dinner cruise on Lake Erie with great company, concluded Friday.

Saturday's business meeting with the Kings Bay Selection and topped of with the Saturday evening Sea Stories session by none other than Captain K. D. Barker and more great company for the Banquet and auctions. I am actually looking forward to Kings Bay 2021

Please start planning for it now, talk to your buddies that haven't attended in a while or not at all.

For all you younger folks like myself, I was once told that I needed to reconnect with the guys from the boat, because they would be the only ones to truly understand me, and you know, my brother was right.

I understand it can be difficult and hard to see the value in coming to one of these reunions but you just might be surprised at what you come away with after attending.

That said. please update your information and plan to attend. If you don't attend, we cannot get your input on where to hold and what type of event to plan for the next ones going forward.
