This is an open invitation to all to join some of us in Norfolk, VA, 2-9 September 2012 for the annual USSVI (SubVets) National Convention.  I have discussed and gotten affirmation that we are welcome to attend even if not members of the organization.  You will have to pay all appropriate fees, e. g. lodging, registration, dinner banquet, tours, etc.  A Plan of the Week and other details are posted at ussvi.org, click "conventions" and you're there.  This is not an attempt to interfere with the NCVA, but just an idea for all to swap sea stories with someone who might appreciate and understand them.  It is also a great opportunity to see those of us you spent so many exciting days and nights in company with so many years ago.  Jerry Stump, Tommy Cox, Bill Lockert, Mike Varone, Robert "Bulge" Jordan and others are plannning to be there and hope you will join us.  By the way, the first round is on the last one in the bar door on Thursday evening.  Look forward to hearing from you and if you would please pass the word to all of our compadres.

Hello Billy
I believe this could be a significant happening for everyone concerned....

...Hopefully, Hurricane season next year will be (so far) 2011, quiet in September.  So I plan on being at the SubVets reunion with other Gents that served on the boats....

....Take care, I hope to see John Morgan COB  and Hutchinson (Hutch) the night cook on Remora, Tully, COB on the Barb.  Hopefully there will be some STIC riders, and CO's and XO's? 

Can't wait.....
