Two new "tabs" at the top of the page. "The Legal Stuff" which has Minutes, By-Laws, and 2017 Treasurer's Report. "Computer Corner" has useful information many may find helpful. I've also rearranged the Reunion Photos by year which makes them easier to navigate.
Two of our shipmates have been kind enough to share stories of their adventures while aboard Rosie.
Len Gaffga's Stories are HERE and our newest member Skip Moyer has sent us a story HERE

"What a wonderful week at the FDR Reunion in New Orleans!
Made new friends, saw many old friends, did some neat stuff, saw some great sights. Shipmates share a bond that is like few others. A ship's crew works, fights, plays and lives together 24X7. You win as a crew or your ship goes down!
It's a bond like no other.
Now, 60+ years later, we're older and slower, but we're still shipmates!" Bob Siefker
