Reunion Registration

Dear Shipmates:
We are well underway planning our 2024 Reunion. This one will be exciting and a little different than our past reunions. First, we are very pleased to announce the USS Bennington CV-20, CVA 20, CVS-20 Association Members will be joining us – so it will be a reunion of “The Lady & Big Benn”. Their Association visited the Yorktown on their 50th Anniversary and will now be celebrating their 80th with us.

This year we are utilizing the services of Armed Forces Reunions. They are a national company devoted to planning and executing military reunions. Their services will streamline our process and ease the workload on our reunion organizing team. I mention this because you will be seeing their name, or AFR, on various documents we will be mailing to you, as well as making some of your reunion reservation online thru them if you choose. You will receive a Reunion Registration packet in the mail the beginning of May to complete and return to AFR. You can also register online by going to our reunion page (see link below).

Our reunion plans include: 2 optional tours, our one of a kind “Visitor Meet & Greet”, three meals on the ship and of course our very moving Memorial Service. We are planning as many activities as possible to be celebrated with our Bennington shipmates.

We look forward to seeing you at our 76th Reunion.

Best wishes,
Ron Meacham
Reunion Coordinator
