24th Annual Ship's Company Reunion

51 miles E-SE of Pittsburgh PA

Banner on the Square!

What a time everyone had!
USS Rich shipmates... the little tin can crew that could.  And still does. Yup, we still know how to party and have a great time!

128 shipmates, wives and guests gathered in Ligonier, PA, a quaint little town filled with friendly residents made our stay very pleasant.  This year we had five "First Timers" who were made to feel welcome and are likely to continue to attend annual reunions.

Our hosts, EMCM Paul Angelicchio and wife Karen along with their Reunion Assist Team did a superb job in providing all the aspects of making the event successful.

With all reports in, everyone who made the trip to Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water, Quecreek Mine Memorial, Flight 93 Memorial and Fort Ligonier were delighted.  (And some, worn-out after the long day.)

This year, we were honored to "Pipe Aboard" our two attending Plank Owners, Ed Roggenbuck and Fred Rockwell and they, in turn, were provided "Special Recognition" plaques.
