Still trying to figure out how to post here. Our reunion in Groton went very well and the comments have all been good ones. We had some first timers, Frank Turban, Steve Hodnett, Mike and Sandy Owens, Steve Nesthus, Steve Hodnett, Dan Devlin and Steve Cutler. We were surprised by a tour of USS New Hampshire SSN 778 and NIOD Det Groton (old NSGA). I have asked Todd Criner to post photos
