2017: On behalf of the entire TCHVA, I'd like
to wish everyone a very Happy and Healthy New Year in 2018.
And as we turn the calendar to 2018, we're getting closer to our next TCHVA Reunion in Rapid City, SD.
For early planning purposes, it looks like we're targeting early June 2019 (somewhere around 4-8 June 2019 for early
estimates) to take advantage of better pricing for accomodations, events, and avoiding conflicts with other major events in
and around Rapid City SD during that timeframe (you Sturgis bikers know what I mean!).
2017: On behalf of the entire TCHVA Board of Directors
I'd like to extend our wishes to all of you for a most enjoyable and blessed Holiday Season! Our thoughts and prayers
especially go out to those battling illness or disease, or those who may be facing the terrible fires in California and elsewhere.
We wish you all nothing but the best and hopes for a healthy and happier New Year.
2017: Please check out the latest TCHVA Newsletter!
Just hit the Newsletters link on the left and Voila! You should be there (that is if the Webmaster knows what
he'd doing). Cheers!
2017: As we pause to remember those 3,000+ lives
lost this day in 2001 to the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon and the fields of Somerset County PA, we
also send our prayers and best wishes to any former shipmates, families and friends who may have been impacted by Hurricanes
Harvey in Texas and Irma in Florida (and possibly further north as of this writing).
August 2017: Hear Ye Hear Ye!!! The votes are in,
and the attendees of the 2017 TCHVA Reunion in Minneapolis MN have voted Rapid City SD as the site for our 2019 TCHVA Reunion. The actual date and times for this
reunion are still to be determined, but we have enlisted the services of a travel planner to get the ball rolling.
Keep an eye out in this website, especially the Reunion 2019
Planning page, or on our Facebook page where we'll be posting updated information
as plans are firmed up. While it may be a bit early to start planning your trip, you can at least make a note of the
location and start checking out things you might like to do and drop us a note via the Contact Us link.
"I can imagine no more
rewarding a career. And any man who would be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think
can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy."
