I have updated the Memorial List and we now have 240 names in the
Memorial Service we will perform at the reunion.
I have updated the list of those registered for the reunion. The total
is 127. I believe this to be a final list. I have removed all the
cancellations I have received.
I saw on USSVI.org Eternal Patrol that Ernest W. Morgan an EN on Von
Steuben died on 2/25 in North Carolina. That's all the information I have.
I received the following from Tim France:
I noticed on the Reunion Web page that Steve Hyman, Assistant Weapons
Officer 1983-1985 is not listed on the Memorial List. He was a Lieutenant
when he served on the Von S. The information is on the Obituaries Page.
The USSVI Eternal Partol list added Earle C. Thurlow
III an ENFN plankowner Gold. The Obituary is on the Obituaries page.
Going through the Eternal Patrol list for USS Von
Steuben on USSVI.ORG I found the following members who have passed recently:
Robert A. LaGassa, Thomas "Jeff" Branch, Jr., Norman Kuzel, Gary Shepherd,
Rorbert Orndorf, and Clarence Wreath. They will be places on the Memorial
List and Obituaries will be posted.
An updated list of those registered for the 2022 reunion is

E-mail reminders about the reunion have gone out to
everyone with a registered e-mail address. If you didn't get one then I
don't have your e-mail.
I received an e-mail asking for help from the family
of James E. Kennedy. They believe he was an EM who served on board in 1965.
