For God and Country, we associate ourselves together for the following purposes: To uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America; To commemorate the United States Ship Franklin D. Roosevelt (CVB/CVA/CV-42); To preserve the memories of events connected with and the friendships arising from our association with the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt; and To render assistance to shipmates and to other Naval and Marine Corps personnel and their families.


The purpose of the organization is to promote patriotism in the United States of America as a Veteran's Fraternal and Charitable Organization by mutual association of the membership in a common interest, that being the honorable service to our nation while serving aboard the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt during her commissioned service. To this end we hold an annual reunion and business meeting in May of each year.


The USS FDR CVB/CVA/CV-42 Reunion was founded in 1988 in Corpus Christi, TX, by John and Aerial Lyons. Since that time we have held 22 reunions and have a membership of nearly 1,100 members with an active Ladies' Auxiliary. Sadly, both founders have passed away, but their legacy is carried on to this day.
