our current schedule of events
( subject to change but not likely to change much:
The reunion will be held in Long Beach, California, aboard the
RMS (Royal Mail Ship) Queen Mary. Our reunion committee has
visited the ship, and it is a truly amazing experience to be
aboard. The "official" reunion dates are May 14-17 (
Thur - Sun ).
is check-in day, settle in, and enjoy a mixer in the hospitality
suite with your mates.
is traditionally our "tour day"... to see some local
attractions. In this case, the Queen Mary is an amazing tour in
itself, and portable headsets for a self-guided tour will be
provided. It is our only scheduled tour, and will easily
fill the entire day aboard the Queen.
we will bus to the nearby battleship USS Iowa BB-61, where we
will lunch, tour the ship, and have a memorial ceremony.
will Man the Rails aboard the Iowa in honor of our fallen
uniform (white pants, white short sleeve shirt, and NN ball
cap).... and wear it!
is our traditional formal dinner and dance, aboard the Queen
Sunday (17th) is check-out and head for home day.
the L.A. area is such an interesting place, with many world
famous attractions, shipmates are advised to make a real
vacation out of the trip to the west coast, come early, stay
late, or both. We've arranged for our special discount price to
be available for 3 days before and 3 days after the
"official" reunion days. This may well be the best
reunion ever... we can't overemphasize how amazing the Art Deco
Queen Mary is... with the world's largest collection of rare
woods in one location. The interior is wood paneled from stem to
stern, and is a marvel to tour.
make your plans for May of 2015 to include a fabulous west coast
vacation and bunking aboard a WWII troop transport known as the
"Grey Ghost".... which still has a pair of 40 MM AA
guns aboard as a reminder. In terms of reunion habitats, it
simply doesn't get much better than this.....
