This year the USS Yorktown’s 67th Annual Reunion was spent under a constant downpour. Hurricane Joaquin was partially responsible for the record breaking downfall and flooding that hit South Carolina the weekend of the Reunion.
We were happy to see everyone maintained a positive and supportive attitude during the soggy chaos. In fact, a CVS-10 sailor was over heard exclaiming, “we sailed through a typhoon… what’s a little rain?!” Unfortunately the incessant rain and flooding did cause the Aquarium excision to be cancelled and dinner to be rescheduled. At least we can all say that we survived hurricane Joaquin!
