Dues are Due (that’s why they’re called dues)

Membership dues are due again, so be sure to get yours in. This is a volunteer organization so dues are extremely necessary to continue its operation. The dues are only $10 for the year or $100 for a lifetime membership.

Send your check, payable to USS Brownson Association, to:
Ben Glasser
5 Speedling Pl
Yonkers, NY 10703-1721

New Bouncing “B” Editor

Sharon Holcomb has volunteered to take over as editor of the official Association newsletter, The Bouncing “B”. The first issue just came out and it’s obvious that Sharon is going to do a great job. Thanks to Sharon for taking this job on and especially thanks to previous editor, Joe Eliff, for the great work he did during his term.

Anyone remember George Burke?

George served aboard the Brownson during Operation Highjump in ’46-’47. His grandson is trying to get some more information on him. If you remember him, please contact me at webmaster@ussbrownson.com and I’ll pass it on to him.

Brownson Video Online
