Hey, saw a reunion coming up in September in Philadelphia. I am originally from South Jersey and will be home during this time. I was attached to V-4 from 07 Dec 1979 to April 1983. Have attended any reunions over the years so I have no idea of what happens
Can anyone tell me or send me an itinerary as to what goes on?

I just returned from a trip to Fredericksburg, Texas and toured the Nimitz museum, which is next door to the Pacific War museum. The Admiral Nimitz museum has very little artifacts on the ship, only a piece of anchor chain given by the association some years ago. I donated all of my commissioning memorabilia to the museum. A better place for this stuff than stuffed away in my file cabinet. Served on pre-com crew from April 72-Aug. 75 as MM2 in RM Division.

I was appointed to the second increment Pre-commissioning crew in 1972. When construction fell behind schedule, my orders were cancelled. A few months later I received orders to the South Carolina DLGN-37 (later as the CGN-37) pre-commissioning crew. As an IC-1 I served until my discharge in December 1974. I still have my Captain's letter announcing my selection for the Nimitz crew, and other memorabilia. Prior to this I had served aboard the USS Enterprise.
