USS Meredith Association DD 165, DD 434, DD 726, DD 890
Welcome to the USS Meredith Association. We received your name and address from one of several sources (we found you or you found us) and I am sending you several items.
1) USS Meredith Association membership application
2) Ships history
3) Membership application for “Tin Can Sailors Inc.”(For use if you’re not already a member)
4) “Going to Sea” (You may get some laughs from this)
5) Copies of our most recent newsletter.
We invite you to join our association and have your name placed on our 500+ name roster covering the entire time the ship was in commission. We have had 16 reunions to date (the last at Washington, DC. in October 2007). The 17th reunion is scheduled for Sept 30 to Oct 4 2008 inCincinnati,OH. We hope you can join us for some great fun and reminiscing.
If you have kept in touch with any of your shipmates over the years would you please send me their names and addresses so we may also contact them. If you have a cruise book from your time aboard would you also please photocopy the crew list and send me a copy (we are still missing many of them) as we find them useful for locating former crewmembers.
If you have any questions please give me a call at 973 839 0332, email me at email@example.com, or drop me a note at377 Conklintown Rd. Ringwood,NJ 07456.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Further details of our reunion, scheduled forCincinnati,OHwill be posted on our reunion planners website as soon as they are completed. If you have internet access, check the website occasionally to see when the arrangements are complete.
