26 June 2022:
As part of the recent TCHVA Reunion, we were able to have our ship's plaque dedicated and mounted at the US Navy Memorial!
Then after the dedication, we were treated to a fabulous brunch courtesy of Ms Jo MacMichael, CAPT John (Skip) MacMichael's
wife. We thank Jo for her gracious generosity and are sure Skip would have enjoyed the dedication. If you are
ever in the DC area, please take time to visit the US Navy Memorial and check out our plaque.

A sincere THANK YOU to all the following shipmates who so generously donated to the USS Thomas C. Hart
Commemorative Plaque Fund Drive. Our drive started on 13 November 2019 and completed on 3 December 2019. Your donations
will make it possible for our ship to be memorialized in the US Navy Memorial in Washington DC.
Here is a picture of the final design you all voted
on for dedication at the Navy Memorial in Washington DC. Again, our sincerest thanks to all who contributed, to all
who served onboard, and every shipmate who will have the opportunity to visit the Navy Memorial and see our plaque.
