Well the 2013 reunion is now a piece of Conway history and now we move onto our 30th annual reunion in 2014. Unlike past years we do not have a shipmate volunteer to host for 2014 so we are actively persuing a professional reunion planner. We are looking at both the Norfolk/Va. Beach areas and also the Myrtle Beach, SC locations but nothing has been decided yet but we on the reunion committee are making good progress. We have about 30 shipmates who live near both Norfolk and Myrtle Beach that have never attended a reunion so while it will be in your back-yard it's time you got to know us. Our goal is to have everything wrapped up by the end of this year so look for reunion info in the President's Newsletter.

I also remember Sunday, July 20, 1969, but not because my shipmate Bob Dykes reported onboard the USS Conway for the first time. There are certain things you remember all through life and that is a day I will never forget. That Sunday morning Allen Griffith (DCFN)and I drove to Chambersburg, Pa. from the Philadelphia shipyard where the Conway had it's home port. We visited another shipmates family but I can only remember his last name which I think was Tracz or something like that. i believe he was either with the Radar or Sonar gang. That late afternoon we watched in amazement as Neil Armstrong took the historic first steps onto the surface of the Moon.
