This reunion is for ALL YEARS Kirk crew, and any of our Vietnamese and Taiwanese family and friends! It would be awesome to even see a Fen Yang shipmate or two if they are in the US!
I encourage shipmates from all years to join us. We really need to see some Yokosuka and Long Beach crew get involved. You won’t regret it! I look forward to seeing you all in Virginia in September!

I’d like to see some uniforms! If you can still fit in yours, please wear it to the reunion dinner.
We will also vote in new officers. No association can survive without participation. We have thousands of Kirk crewmembers and so there should be no shortage of volunteers to lead our organization. Please let me know if you would be interested in one of the officer positions. They are two year assignments and all the heavy duty and legal work is done, so now we just need to build on it. Our positions are: President, Vice-President (2 positions if possible), Treasurer, and Secretary.
