Re: Reunion 2013 Planning: Location (Round 2 Voting)

In 1963, 50 years ago come 2013, the Madison was launched, the commissioning crew was being assembled, and we were on our way at the shipyard in Newport News, VA. To celebrate that 50th anniversary, let's go back to Newport News for the 2013 reunion. There's lots to see and do in the Newport News/No...

Re: Reunion 2011 Planning: Location (Round 2 voting)

I was the one who suggested Newport News as the site of the 2011 reunion at the association meeting held at the Bremerton reunion. I hope all of the Madison crew will vote and that you will seriously consider Newport News when you vote. Remember that the first reunion was held at Charleston, our lon...

Re: Reunion 2011 Planning: Location

I suggested that Newport News be the location for the 2011 reunion. We had a reunion in Charleston, the original and long time home port; then in Jacksonville/Kings Bay, a major east coast sub base; then at New London/Groton, the sub base where many of us trained and the shipyard where the boat was ...

Re: Met a Madison shipmate-

Hi Thom, Commissioning crew gold Chief Cook was P. B. Johnson (remember the chair incident, etc.). I believe Chief Menshew came aboard after PB left. Hope to see you at the reunion next July.

Re: 2009 Reunion Plans

Hi Fred and Charline and all James madison crew members, Keep in mind that the USS James Madison was commissioned on July 28, 1964. July 28, 2009, will be the 45th anniversary of the commissioning. If I'm reading the calendar correctly, July 28, 2009, will fall on a Tuesday. I suggest that you hold ...

Re: 2009 Reunion

Keith, I have sent a copy of the December 2007 letter and the Association Membership Sign-up form to all those I've contacted. I hope all of them will respond with their info and dues, but I can't be sure. All of them are gold crew, mostly Nucs, and most of them are plank owners. I now challenge the...

2009 Reunion

What is the latest info about the 2009 reunion in Bremerton. Two years is now almost one year, especially if it's held around the end of June like the last one. We need time to plan. Younger shipmates will need to arrange for time off work. Some of us older ones will need to start putting aside mone...

2009 Reunion Site

Perhaps this former Madison Officer who has just taken over as CO Trident Refit Facility and was CO of King's Bay Submarine Base could contact his colleague at Bangor and help us arrange something there. In addition, we might be able to tour the submarine disposal facility at Bremerton. Any other th...

Daylight Savings Time

During WWII we went on daylight savings time for the duration. I'd be happy if we did that again instead of shifting back and forth.
