Successful Reunion

In October, three men who served aboard USS Bennion joined a large group of widows, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to celebrate the ship and the sailors who served so admirably. It was a wonderful time of connecting and reconnecting with people who hold this great ship dear. Included on the itinerary was a visit to the Boston Navy Yard and the USS Cassin Young (DD-793)--a Fletcher-class museum ship--and a moving banquet where the three veterans in attendance opened a bottle of champagne to remember their lost friends.
