Al Creasy and John Kieft head up the reunion association
The Clarion Hotel in Charleston host many navy reunions. Charlston was the second largest Naval base on the east coast and is a nice city to visit with lots of history and attractions and friendly Southern Hospitality. At right is the picture of Morton nowe hanging in the Clarion reunion hall of fame with the signatures of all who attended.
Mini Bull Session abound. Old shipmates talk over old memories. Shared memories.
The last evening is the banquet. Fine food, prayers for those gone on before and then socializing and dancing.
