2013 - Tuscaloosa, Alabama 
This reunion was held April 25-27, 2013 and was hosted by Lee Allen Hallman (Lieutenant aboard the Annapolis from 11/65 thru 10/66).  Lee planned a great reunion which included several trips in and around the Tuscaloosa area:  The Gorgas House & Museum on the UofA Campus, The Moundville Archaeological Site, The Mercedes Benz Automobile Factory, and The UofA Crimson Tide Stadium.   Below are some photos of the local trips and attendees at the Banquet which was held April 24 at the Hotel Capstone in Tuscaloosa.

2015 - Annapolis, Maryland
This reunion was held May 1-3, 2015 and was hosted by Dan McGregor.  Dan planned a great reunion with day-trips around the Annapolis area to include:  The Paca House, the US Naval Academy, and the Annapolis City Dock.  We also took the time to photograph each crew member and his spouse/guest - a face with a name goes a long way!!  
Here are a few photos:
