Reunion Update – June 12, 2020
The USS Basilone DDE/DD-824 Association officers had a conference call to review the Reunion Survey Results and based on those results, the 2021 reunion will be held in Providence, Rhode Island during September/October time frame. More information about the 2021 reunion will be published when it becomes available.
The Reunion Survey Results are posted on the Reunion Info page for you to download.
Reunion Update: April 6, 2020
To the crewmembers of the USS Basilone:
The officers of the association have evaluated the risks of this virus and it has been decided (unanimously) to cancel the Providence Reunion. In the interest of all involved, we felt this to be the best course of action. With cities, counties and states curbing social activity and the anticipation of a second wave of the virus possible, our reunion would be at risk either way.
We ask that our shipmates access the Basilone website and take a few minutes to take the reunion survey. You need a password to access the Reunion Survey page. You will receive the password via email or USPS, if you do not receive the password use the Contact Webmaster page to request the password. The Reunion Survey page will be open from April 15, 2020 to June 1, 2020. This information will be used to determine next year’s (and future) reunions.
We also ask our shipmates to use the Crew Register/Update page on the website to add or update their contact information. This information cuts the associations costs in mailings and keeps communication lines open.
As Association Chaplain, I pray for a resolve of this sickness that has taken our world and wish that you and your family and friends good health. Take care of each other and God bless.
