Veterans Reunion - USS Orion

Recommended Posts

We are on our way to a reunion of the U.S.S. Orion (AS 18) in Ft. Mitchell Ky. Although the Ship no longer exists, (I may have shaved with it this morning), it was in commission from 1943 to 1993. We have a very active veterans group. Our reunions are held every year in a different location. This year's reunion starts on September 11. I have mixed emotions about that date for obvious reasons.

I worked in lower Manhattan for over 25 yrs. I was a sidewalk superintendent during the construction. We have visited "Ground Zero" many times.

Although this is the 10th anniversary we felt attending this reunion would be the right thing to do. Don't know how many more we'll be able to attend. We celebrate America at these reunions.

We have a great web site that covers the entire 50 yr history of the ship. Check it out.

The Orion Veterans Historical Organization welcomes you.

I have been on board the Orion several times (just visits). Home based in Charleston, SC. Served on FS Key SSBN 657. The Orion was in Charleston a long time.
