Re: CANCELATION of 2020 Reunion San Antonio TX / COVID-19

Dear Shipmates,
After a great deal of thought and consideration, polling our membership and considering most of our ages the board has determined that going forward with this year's reunion would not be prudent. If only one of us were to transfer or acquire this virus there would be some serious consequences.
We are proposing to move this reunion to next September 21, 2021.
Thank you for your understanding and please have a safe and healthy remaining 2020.

Sincerely,
Ron Zorn,
USS Benjamin Stoddert DDG-22

Mike Rigdon has done an amazing job on the Fall 19 newsletter
Lots of memories from past reunions! As Herm taught me to say, "Bravo Zulu!"

 The Benjamin Stoddert was a great ship from the beginning to the day that she sank in the Pacific and to this day (unlike so many other old ships) remains "underway with no way on". B.C.

Make a donation to the Association to help preserve the legacy of these great ships.

 

God Bless all our Servicemen
