USS Taylor Reunions

USS Taylor Reunions happen every two years at various locations around the country, and include Taylor Sailors who have served aboard from World War II to Korea, the Cold War and Vietnam. We all share a special bond, and pride in our historic ship.

2022 Reunion is being planned

We have been working on setting up a reunion in Norfolk, VA during October of 2022. To that end we have lined up a hotel and have scheduled a series of tours. We are calling the series “A Tale of 3 Cities” Virginia Beach, Norfolk and Colonial Williamsburg with a “Tolling of the Bell” ceremony on the USS Wisconsin. Just as this NEWSLETTER was “going to press”, however, the planner received a discouraging medical diagnosis concerning a family member that has the potential to fully monopolize his time and derail his further participation in the reunion. Over the next few weeks there will be evaluations by specialist(s) to see how bad the condition is and what the treatment might consist of. Hopefully, we will know something (good news!!) in time for the reunion signup letters and the next NEWSLETTER.
