Dear fellow Shipmates:The 2001 Norfolk reunion was the best yet.
The Norfolk Airport Hilton was the host facility for our third reunion of the nine ships. We had a total of 126 shipmates
and guests. We conducted our business meeting on Saturday afternoon and the attendees reaffirmed Charleston SC as the choice
for the 2002 reunion with John Fry, USS Hartley as chairman and Military Locators and Reunion Services of Hickory NC as the
organizer.LancasterPA was selected as the choice of the majority for the 2003 reunion
with Bob Kitchen as chairman.The dates and location for our Newport
Dealeys 2002 reunion are now set. The Radison North Charleston SC has been booked for the weekend of the 26th –
29th of September. 2002. Invitations will be mailed out in mid June. We have now over 900 shipmates on our list
and it’s still growing. Our Newport Dealeys web site will be under going a major change in the near future. As we announced at the 2001 reunion, Allen Lloyd, our present site master, has informed us that due
to the sites popularity and growth, he can no longer continuously maintain the site at the level of complexity it requires.
He suggested that we consider retaining a larger web site location and a professional web service to take it from here. Bob Kitchen has taken on the task and is working with a web site programmer to create a larger and
more flexible domain. He reports that it should be up and running soon and within budget. I’ll be looking forward to
seeing you all in Charleston
