VHS/DVD of Reunion Available
A very nicely edited video of the events of the Reunion is available from a professional video producer that the Fox Assn contracted with. The video is available directly from the producer and can be ordered using the following form which you should print out and mail:
A good time was had by all! We had a BBQ dinner aboard the Gearing class destroyer Joseph P. Kennedy DD-850, a working party aboard the next day and a really fine banquet at White's Restaurant Saturday evening. A total of over 60 shipmates and over 100 total folks attended the three events.
We were fortunate to have CDR Charles (Chip) Swicker, USN, as our speaker. CDR Swicker is the Director of Command Training at the Surface Warfare Officers School in Newport R.I. He also was Commanding Officer of the John S. McCain DDG 56. He related his experiences in the Navy, aboard the McCain and in Operation "Enduring Freedom", as well as giving us an overview of the state of Navy weapon and propulsion systems.
