A lot of the shipmates on this web page do not members of the USS Hornet Club. Join the Club, you will not regret it. A lot of your buddies want to talk to you. Contact Stu Kerr or myself and we can get an application to you. Better yet go to USSHORNETCLUB.com and print one out. I have just finished scanning all the comments this site has; everyone wants to hear from shipmates. I have something better than that to offer. Join the Club and visit your buddies at a reunion. The next reunion; in Sept. 2005; will be in Jacksonville, FL. and 2006 will be in San Mateo, CA., at this reunion we are planning to have some of the events on board the USS Hornet. Everyone has a great time at the reunions. We need new members to keep the Club going. A lot of our members are passing away and you are needed. Not many engineering rates belong. Lets get some more! So shipmates come and join the Club and rejoin the best crew and ship that was in the NAVY.
