2024 Yorktown Reunion

Yes we just completed our 2023 Reunion and a mini recap is in this issue. And, yes we are talking about “2024”. As you’ve probably seen in your everyday life, things are moving faster – it seems; and planning events takes longer. So here’s a snapshot.
October 9 – 12, 2024. Write the dates on the calendar. Tell all your shipmates, your family, the VFW, the American Legion, and the clerk at the supermarket. We’re starting the planning and will keep you posted on the details. But I can tell you it will be a very special reunion – the USS Bennington CVS-20 has asked to join us for their 80th Commissioning Reunion. We think it will be a great time seeing crew from another Essex Carrier. We’ll plan some events together and of course have our own. More to come.
