As some of you might not already know. The USS Des Moines Reunion Assn. has been dissolved. We have a balance from past years it should carry us through the first year If not we will just pass the hat to keep it solvent. I am going to try and carry on the tradition of the reunion at my house. Miss Patti Frye will be still preparing the fabulous food she has for years. Hope to see you all there. Please Email your RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than July 1st of 2020. So we can get a count on the food.
PS: I served on board the USS IWO JIMA from 1983-1986
