Welcome to the
Reunion Committee Website
Our website is up and running on Hostinger.com. As
far as I can tell everything is working. If you find a problem please let
me know by
clicking here. I am currently using a Windows 7 Netbook with 1 GB of
RAM to edit the website since I am using Microsoft Front Page and it
doesn't work with Windows 10. Over the next few months I will be shifting
over to the website builder on Hostinger working from the pages farthest
from the opening page back so there will probably be some problems. I will
appreciate all the help you can give me.
I have receive word that Michael Connor, MM from the
Decommissioning crew, has died. His obit is on the Obituaries page

I received the following
(I will try to get the obit up on the Obituaries page)
My name is Donna Kranik and I am the daughter of
Donald E. Oldham, Sr. Dad was a plank owner and COB of the blue crew
until 1968 (I’m pretty sure that was the year).
Dad passed away this past Friday, Jan 4, 2018. He was
living in Longview, WA at the time.
Dad loved the navy and he absolutely loved this ship.
Mom passed away five years ago, and their ashes will
be interred at Willamette National Cemetery.
I received the following from our Chairman, Bill
Hughes about the next reunion:
Von Steuben members,
like some feedback on the following: We can have our reunion from Tuesday,
March 17 to 20, 2020 for a room rate of
$99.90/night at Courtyard Marriott in downtown Pigeon Forge. That is the
best weekly rate available in town. We could also
from Thursday, March 19 to 22, 2020 for a room rate of $99.90 for Thursday and
$189.70/night for Friday and Saturday.
