Alumni Organization
Dear Friends,

      All the plans, and now itís over.  We hope that everyone enjoyed the Southern hospitality as much as we did.

     From the tour of beautiful Bellingrath Gardens, the cruise on the Fowl River, the trip to Naval Air Museum, and the impressive Memorial Service aboard the USS Alabama, it was a great reunion.

      We enjoyed hosting such a great group.  Our reunions have become as much a family reunion as a shipís reunion.  Also thank all of you for your notes and cards of appreciation.  It was our pleasure .

                               Sincerely, Al & Kathy Plapp
