The Executive Board of our Association, would like to welcome to our web-site, all former crew members, their families, friends and all who love battleships.
We have four elected officials, President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. The remaining staff is appointed by the President.
Meet the people who keep this Association active. They are the ones that make this a family oriented association. They keep you informed as to the happenings of our ship, organize our reunions, and in general keep us together.
