“Sailors be on GOOD BEHAVIOR in Milwaukee”, The “SPs are watching
Great Lakes Naval Station
The "Fonz" from Happy Days
If you have been to a previous reunion and if you still have your neck wallet, and you are going to Milwaukee, we would like to have you bring it with you, so you can use it again.
If you have any items you would like to contribute to the fund raising auction
please bring them along to the reunion.
This year, there will be four shadow boxes with a souvenir piece of the original wood from the FLIGHT DECK of the USS Kearsarge, including a signed photo of the ship from the last CO, Captain Nearman, and an engraved brass plate with the name of the ship and the donor of the wood, Bill Hollywood. On the back of the box is the story of the ships history. These will sell fast and in excess of $100 each, so bring lots of money. Don't miss out, there are only four of them! A great heirloom to pass on to your grandchildren. As the years pass by these will be impossible to acquire.
One of these has been placed in the WWII Museum in Portage, WI.
Maybe you would like to put one in your local museum in memory of you or your ship
Replica of the plane John McCain went down in.
