    If you spent a holiday season away from home like the 1963 crew pictured below, then you'll remember what a sacrifice it was.  Now we need to give thanks to all the service men and women serving this season.

    This year’s reunion in San Antonio, Texas while not having the largest turn-out was still one of the best I’ve ever attended.  The reunion banquet was attended by just under a hundred Shipmates, Gals, and friends.  And just like every meal I ate in Texas, the food was absolutely delicious.  Also, as always, the Gal's pitched in to make everyone's time all the more enjoyable, with a special thanks to Donna Shock, Jane Bakos, and Laura Fisher.

    At the Shipmates' Business Meeting, a completely revised set of bylaws was adopted, and new officers were elected as pictured below from left to right: President, Keith Hedley; Secretary, Bob Rank; and VP/Treasurer, Bob Bakos 

    – okay, a motley looking crew, but nevertheless dedicated to this association.

    Also at the meeting, the 2019 reunion site selected was:

    New Orleans, Louisiana -- 2019

    In the more immediate future, we will be assembling in Daytona Beach, Florida next year beginning September 26th.

    Keep an eye on this site’s Reunion page to see all that's in the future. And to keep up with even more association news and happenings, maintain your membership.

    The US house of representatives just passed a piece of legislation that would allow shipmates who served aboard the Galveston while in Vietnam waters and are suffering from diseases associated with Agent Orange exposure to apply for benefits.  (for more information on this issue, click here). 

    The next step to becoming Law requires U.S. Senate approval.  All shipmates can help make this Law by contacting your Senator and requesting their support.  A direct email link to your Senator can be found by clicking here and following these steps:
    1. alphabetically find your senator,
    2. and under their name, select the Contact link,  
    3. identify yourself,
    4. select Veterans Affairs under "Pick A Topic", and
    5. request his/her support in advancing The Approved House Military Construction and Veterans Affairs appropriations bill through the Senate.
    You can also  help by forwarding this request to your friends and family.
