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 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.

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. If you can help check the Bulletin board below.
