Shipmates and guests started arriving on Wednesday. Our hospitality room was
fabulous. It was located on the first floor where there was easy access for
all shipmates and guests.
Custom backpacks and name badges were handed out to shipmates and guests.
The backpacks included documents and a 3D printed USS James E. Kyes logo
On Saturday afternoon, shipmates met in the hospitality room to discuss
association business and to choose a location for the next reunion.
Saturday evening started with a photo shoot outside hotel followed by a dinner
banquet in the hotel.
After the banquet, we had a 50/50 drawing and auction of items donated by
shipmates. Our reunion this year was a great financial success due to the
generosity of the shipmates and guests with donations and also due to sales
from the ship's store. We should have plenty of funds to replenish the ship's
store, send out Christmas greetings and plan for our next reunion in 2021.
Rick Warden presented the Korea Defense Service Medal to Kyes shipmates
who were aboard when the USS Pueblo (AGER-2) was seized by North Korea in 1968.
Here is the text of that presentation.
Here are some shipmate comments:
Peggy and I had a wonderful time at our first reunion. We are already looking
forward to the next reunion.
More information will be posted here as it becomes available.
