2013 Reunion in Mobile, Alabama! Print E-mail

Shipmates:
The assembled crews of the USS Tunny (SS, SSG, APSS 282 & SSN 682) have voted to meet again for our bi-annual reunion in Mobile, Alabama in 2013. Details are already underway as the Mobile Convention and Visitors Bureau has been contacted.

The San Diego reunion was a great success because of the work of the  Association's President Mr. Gerry Young. His tireless efforts and dogged determination exemplified the caliber of all submarine sailors when given an assignment. Thanks, Gerry for all you accomplished! The families and crews of the two Tunnys are grateful for your efforts on our behalf.

I appreciate Steve's comments. He failed to mention that the work that he, Wally Womack, JJ Jenkins and Lee Ashcraft did was necessary for the reunion being a success. 
 
And, of course, Steve meant to say "SSN 682" instead of "SSG 682." It was great to see our nuclear shipmates enjoy themselves at the reunion.

Affirmative to the "SSN 682" revision. I only caught that after I submitted my comment. In addition to the invaluable efforts of Wally and Lee, we both forgot to thank Dennis Urffer, Kimo and Quint for their assistance in pulling things together for the event. If there are others whom I have forgotten to thank, please accept my apologies and my belated gratitude.
