2008 Reunion in Baltimore a success!
From September 4-7, the SELLERS Association members gathered in Baltimore's Inner Harbor at the Holiday Inn for a grand time of sea story telling, and the renewing of old friendships. The Reunion was a lot of fun; the weather on Friday & Sunday was great, but Sat was very WET, as Tropical Storm Hannah blew by Maryland. In spite of the rain, everyone enjoyed the trip out to Fort McHenry. Folks also had a chance to enjoy the Baltimore Inner Harbor, a very neat place. For those who had never really visited Baltimore before, it was interesting to look around, get some history of the town, and see the sights. Many enjoyed seeing the 4 museum ships that they have in the Inner Harbor - a WW II Sub, a Coast Guard Cutter, a Coast Guard Lightship, and the USS Constellation. Our Banquet on Saturday night was only surpassed by Sunday morning's Memorial Service to shipmates no longer with us.
During the Business Meeting, an election of new Association officers was held, and a vote was taken to have the next Reunion in Norfolk, unless the ADAMS Museum is open in Jax, in which case we'll go to Jax.
Photographs from the Reunion can be viewed here.

This is an update on the status of our Donation Application submission to NAVSEA PMS-333 for the berthing of the ex-USS CHARLES F. ADAMS (DDG-2) in Jacksonville, FL. In preparing the Application, the eight core ACVA team members expended over 2100 hours of in-kind work in three months to complete the 826 pages of the 3-Volume Application. Thanks to the efforts of Pete Mansel, Jim Aldrich, Bob Rumney, Bert Watson, Wayne Misenar, Craig Bernat, and Tom Crosser, the Application was completed on March 28. The Application was submitted to NAVSEA on March 31 by the joint team of ACVA and our "sister” organization, the Jacksonville Historic Naval Ship Association (JHNSA). A summary of our Application is currently available on the ACVA web site, http://www.adamsclassddgvets.org/.
