2024 NAUTILUS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION, INC. REUNION
September 27 thru October 01 2024
It was called to our attention by PANOPO Bill Gaines the September 2024 reunion coincides with the 70th anniversary of the commissioning of USS Nautilus SSN 571. This changes everything.
The 70th anniversary of the commissioning is September 30, 2024. Therefore the NAAI Board has decided to have the 2024 reunion September 27 – October 1, Friday thru Monday. This is a celebration of every crew member that ever served on Nautilus.
We have asked our friends at the New London Submarine Base and the Submarine Force Museum and Library, Home of USS Nautilus and OIC of Historic Ship Nautilus, Lt. Commander Chapman for their guidance and involvement. We have been assured they are willing to help us.
If you have already replied that you want to attend the reunion and this date is still okay for you I don’t need you to reply again, except for your excitement. I also want and need your suggestions in what you would like to have at the reunion. More to come in the future newsletters and emails.
Please email me if you anticipate attending. We need to have an estimated number to reserve the venues and events. Please let me know no later than October 1, 2023. This is a “wish list”, not a firm commitment.
Stay safe and healthy friends. We want to see you next year!
