That's fifteen shipmates committed to spending some time together and remembering old shipmates and good times.  A few years ago shipmate Richard Miles (FN from Ron 3 patrol) told me, "This reunion makes me feel like family! I'm glad we came."  The banner tag line of this website is "Shipmates Once - Friends Forever" and I know that to be true, so come sit with your friends for a while.
