Hi shipmates and right handers, I had a call from Lowell Chadwick, about the coast of the meal for the banquet, for children under 12 years of age. The cost will be $12.00 for children under 12yrs. the menu for Children will be, chicken strips or hamburger with F F and cookie, with water or soft drink. Please let Mitzi know if you have a child that fits in that category, with there choice of menu selection.
If you have any questions call me or Mitzi.
Looking forward to July, see you all then.

Hi. shipmates and right handers, I just talked to Mitzi and Forrest about the cut off date to send in your money for the reunion and the tours. Instead of April 15 for the cut off date, it is now extended to May 15 so it gives everyone and extra month. Hopefully this will be better for all. Hope to see everyone in July, so we can pass us a good time sha.
Take care and God Bless

Hello Shipmates and Righthanders,
Just received a wonderful letter from Bob Yelton's neice. She has been back to Texas to complete the tax paperwork. She has visited with Mike. The folks at Orchard Park (Assisted Living and Memory Care) think he has a chaming personality?/ Carolyn feels differently. Each time she goes she thinks she can see a big change and that he is doing better. He has a lighter wheelchair and also a new electric chair. Going to therapy twice a week and to the dentist. He can even stand up by himself and does several things he didn't do before. He seems very content with his living arrangements. His address: Mike Yelton, Orchard Park, 3151 Southfork Pkwy, Apt. 134 , Manvel, TX 77578 and Phone: 281-692-9660. He talks about the reunions and the ones he attended, misses the folks that he met and known for many years. Please keep him in your Thoughts and Prayers, and he would love to have a short note or card from you, if you so desire.
Well now then I hope many of you have made your plans to attend the reunion in LA., time is getting shorter, April 15th is the deadline, so please get with it, and send everything to Forrest and Sue, it will be a wonderful time for all of us. Gracious folks are in contrl.
Take care.
Les and Janet

Hello friends,
First and foremost, hope many of you are getting your reservations and things taken care of for the Lousiana reunion,--must be taken care by April 15th.
Now then we have just recently been in contact with a gentleman from North Carolina that served on board 56-59. He is critically ill with asbestos exposure from the ship. He does receive compensation from the VA. We are mailing 3 logbooks to him, as he wants to just read them and hopefully recognize some names of his former shipmates.
His address: David Nicoulin, 8300 Scotch Meadows Drive, Laurinburg, NC 28369.
We know he would appreciate hearing from some of you. Keep this family in your Thoughts and Prayers.
We are having spring in Iowa, and it has been so nice, some rain, but just need to have the acreage dry up a bit, so we can pick up sticks and limbs. Les is doing good, we sure had a wonderful trip to LA to see the USS IOWA. What an amazing ship, and were told it could be battle ready within weeks if there is a need.
Take care and see all of you in Lousiana in July.
Les and Janet

Could you please mail me another copy. I apologize for the confusion. Marie Lopez, 50 Camino Vega Verde, Corrales, NM 87048. Ph# 505-250-1064 Thank you

Did any of you know Jerry Michael Bourcier? I am doing a family history search and found his name listed as the groom of my mother.
