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.
2017 - OK folks, our 2017 TCHVA Reunion was a great
success, ask anyone who attended. Quite a few first-timers, some continuing their "perfect attendance" (we
need to put some stars on their badges next time!) and lots of other shipmates, families and friends coming together to enjoy
the week. Check out some of the pictures at the Photos page to the
to our new (and some old) TCHVA Officers for the 2017 - 2019 period. Per the by-laws, Steve Garcia relieves Dan Schubert
as our new Board Chairman, Ron Church is our new President, Phil Leblanc was voted in as new Vice President, and all remaining
officers agreed to continue in their present positions and were approved by reunion attendees.
Please check out the 1MC - Attention All Hands or Reunion 2019 Planning
pages at the left for additional info on this year's reunion and plans for 2019. It promises to be another wonderful
time together, in a new location, and hopefully with many new first-timers, returnees and those "perfect" attendees.

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."
