Reunion Photos Posted

We’ve added a gallery for reunion photos. There’s some there now but we’d like to have lots more. Go to the Reunion Page to view the photos and to add yours.

We are also in the process of moving the memorabilia gallery from the old website. Look for it in the upcoming weeks.

    My father was on the USS Brownson. His name is George Kenton Shaw. He was the ship’s barber. Are there any sailors out there who know him?

    Ruth Thomas is my daughter. I was the ship’s barber from Oct.7, 1955 until June of 1958. I was a SH3 at that time.

    My dad MM1 Jack Hanna was on the Brownson during Korea War. He loved going to the reunions after my brother and I left for the Navy. He passed in 2009 and we miss him dearly. Has anyone of his shipmates have any photos I can use in my VSO office. I would love to hear from anyone that new “Bull”. My mom Dorothy is well and living next door. If any of his shipmates come to say hi, they have a free room at my B&B next door in Lisbon ND,
