Reunion Coordinator & Planner Remarks:

As, for the past 22 years, Noah Joyner & Dick Steenbergen along with their supporting wives, Jane & Marge, have tried to take the Estes Association to choice of its members. We have been successful more than not. We are in Dick's hometown this year so that we may give him a break and hopefully make him proud. Let's remember that you all  had a proud ship here whether it was WWII, Cold War, Korea, Vietnam or the many operations to embed her legacy in the Pacific. We have a website and we are ever searching for shipmates of the past so join us if you can that we may realize our mission.


Please address all correspondence or calls for room registration to: Country Inns & Suites
