Navigating the Listings

These lists are in alphabetical order and ships are listed under their official Navy names.  For example, the USS Charles Ausburne DD-570 is listed under "C," not "A."

All LCI, LCM, LSM and LST-type Amphibious Warships are in the "Landing Craft" list.

Listings for non-ship or group associations such as DESRON-49 (under "D") and the US Navy Cruiser Sailor Association (under "C") are in the first part of each list.  Many associations have "Navy" or "Naval" in their names, look under "N" for them.

The "Airgroup" listing has associations such as VC-20.  If an Airgroup is associated with a particular carrier, then that Airgroup is noted both at the Carrier's listing and under the Airgroup listing.

How to add to or correct these Lists

Please note, this website is operated only as a part-time hobby and not as a full-time occupation.  For that reason, I necessarily depend upon Reunion Associations to contact NavWeaps about any changes needed to their listing, including details for the next reunion.  So, if you find that I do not have your next reunion listed, or that I have an error in your listing, or if you know of a Contact or a Reunion not listed here, won't you please take a minute to let me know?  Just send an  and I'll gladly do an update.  Please include the following information:

Reunion listings are maintained for three years.  This is meant as an aid to help former crewmembers find previous reunion and - hopefully - current contacts for their old ships.

If you are a current or former crewmember and don't find your association on these lists, please  and I will be happy to add you to my listings as a potential contact.  Please include your ship, rank or position and when you were aboard.  If you are not a former crewmember, then please see the Other Resources section, below.

EMAIL NOTE:  When Emailing, please do not change the Subject Line Reunion_Request that appears when you click on one of the  links on this page.  This Subject Line allows your message to get past the NavWeaps Spam filter.

Why I do these Reunion Lists

Every once in awhile, someone asks me why I spend time doing these reunion listings for people I've never met, nor probably ever will, while paying for it out of my own pocket.  It's not something that I can put into words, but perhaps the following note that I received shortly after I started may explain why:

Mr. DiGiulian,

I am thankful that I came across your fine site.  I sincerely appreciate the prompt manner in which you came forward with this information.

It's been 50 years since I spoke with anyone who served on the NO Boat [USS New Orleans CA-32].  It's strange, but only in the last few months have I had this strong urge to do so.  Again, I sincerely thank you.
