The 2019 reunion was fantastic.  Chris and Bob did an excellent job with the planning and after the usual onsite adjustments everything was great.  Congratulations to them for putting together a reunion that brought forth the 'one of the best reunions ever' comments.  Visit our Facebook page to see some of those comments.  The Omni was a great hotel.  The highlight of the reunion was the trip to the USS Lexington with the luncheon honoring our fallen shipmates especially Roland King and Bob Nieman.  Pictures from the reunion events will be published in the Sunrise Press and on this website as they become available.  Thank you to all the shipmates, family and friends that attended!
