Class REUNIONS

DDG-2/DD-19 Updated 9/6/2018



If you desire info contact Richard "Dick" Harmon - his email is shown below.

This email is from Dick Harmon, the reunion coordinator for combined reunions for the DDG-19 & DDG-2 crew mates. He has personally been putting these reunions together for many years, mostly for DDG-19 crews but also inviting the DDG-2 crews to participate. He is saying this is the last time he will include the DDG-2 crew mates for these reunions. He takes on quite a task and it is a lot of personal effort and work and thank him for the many years he has continued to invite the DDG-2 crew and make these combined reunions. Since DDG-2 and DDG-19 operated together over many years and in many combined operations and events, many of the crew members became friends and acquaintances. Some DDG-2 crew went on to be assigned to the DDG-19 for later service time.

I am aware our DDG-2 crew mates have not really taken advantage and participated heavily in these combined reunions. Also, it has been many years since the DDG-2 has had anyone who would come forward to volunteer and put together and run or manage a DDG-2 Crew Reunion. I have tried unsuccessfully to identify a person, persons or group willing to do so and had several initially interested but were not willing to pick up and run with this by themselves. I do not have the resources to handle such an undertaking but would be willing to assist anyone willing to take on this as a project. I am also hopeful that when the USS Charles F. Adams finally arrives in Jacksonville, and I think it is only a matter of time, JHNSA will have enough local people with the necessary interest to undertake putting together a reunion. ACVA has always supported the idea that the FIRST ADAMS CLASS DDG Reunion will include ALL Adams Class DDG ship groups from DDG-1 to DDG-24 and the Australian, German and Greek Adams Class DDG ships. Several years ago we had a very large group of Aussie DDG crew mates ready to book flights to become part of such an event in Jacksonville with some German and Greek crew mates interested as well. As the ALL DDG REUNION idea became more widely shared with many ACVA Members, some who did not serve on Adams Class DDGs, many other DDG mates expressed interest in attending such a momentous future reunion.

This will be the last reunion I will do for the USS Charles F Adams DDG-2. I have sent out information about staying at the hotel during the reunion over six months ago. I can see they don't read there emails and the attachment I have with the email. This includes when the ship comes to Jacksonville.

You need to get your people and have them read this email. Some of your people cost the reunion to pay another $1,000 because they stay some where else rather then the host hotel. It could have been up to $4,000

Shipmates

Attached is the itinerary for the upcoming reunion in March 2019 in Jacksonville, FL. Including the Double Tree Hotel Reservation Form. Please note ALL DDG-2 sailors ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE AND MAKE THIS A SUCCESSFUL COMBINED REUNION.

If you are considering attending you need to make a reservation now, otherwise the hotel will book up well before our reunion. Also if you need a special needs room or want a choice of rooms, now is the time to make a reservation. I am enclosing a list of people who have made reservations so far.

I will send out a reunion registration form Wed. Aug. 1, 2019. If you want one, please contact me via email asap. Hope to see you at the reunion
