The purpose of the U.S.S. Saratoga Association is to perpetuate and honor the memory of two great fighting ships, and to hold an Annual Reunion of Saratoga Shipmates in order to enable members to maintain contact with other Shipmates.
Thank you to everyone that came out and helped make our 2014 USS Saratoga Association Reunion in Louisville a huge success.We look forward to seeing you all at next year's reunion in Norfolk, Virginia.
The 2015 Reunion in Norfolk will be October 8th thru 11th at the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside. More details will be published in the January Newsletter. Final details, Banquet Reservation, and information on the tours will be available in the June 2015 newsletter. (Note: The Hotel "block" has not been set up at this time. No need to call to make Hotel arrangements yet.)
The Mayport Mirror Project is Finally Complete
The mirror along with the Forrestal's mirror is now in place at the CPO club, NavSta Mayport (which by the way is now listed as national landmark). All the names of the shipmates who perished while serving aboard Saratoga is laser engraved on the mirror. The art work and design layout is by Diane Senter. The money for this endeavor was raised by shipmate Tom Laquiere, who solicited donations from CVA/CV-60 shipmates.
