2021 Reunion #47 Questionnaire 

At Reunion #45 incoming President Jim Romano, after getting approval of Savannah, GA for next year’s reunion, suggested a 4-day cruise for Reunion #47 in 2021. The cruise would be to Atlantis the Bahamas, out of Port Canaveral, FL or Charleston, SC. Both easy in, easy out ports. Baltimore has good cruises to the Bahamas also.

   The cost ($500-700) would be roughly what reunion attendees have been paying for lodging with the added benefit of free meals and entertainment being included.  Late Spring or early Fall 2021 was suggested as the time frame for the cruise reunion.

   President Jim would like to get input on this from the membership. How do you feel about it?  Let him know by clicking the Cruise Survey link below and completing the form:

In December, an exAG3 who served on the USS Hornet during the early 1960's sent a message to Tom Hanagan offering information and photos of the weather office. The message was lost. Would that good person please resend the message to tomhanagan46@gmail.com or call me at 530-908-4843. Thank you!

Items Needed for Restoration of USS Hornet's Weather Office

I am starting a restoration of the weather office on the USS Hornet. I would like to reach out to the members to see if I can get background on the state of the office when it was decommissioned in 1970. This includes photos as well as information on what equipment was installed. I know some equipment has been removed, but most of it is there. Do you have suggestions on how to reach out to AG's who were stationed on the ship back then? I'll also be trying to procure equipment that was located in the office at the time (e.g. recording barographs and thermographs, handheld psychrometers, etc.). I'd like to contact NAS stations that may have old stuff laying around, and I'm guessing the best way is through the "old boy network". Finally, older hand plotted maps and especially teletype transmissions of weather code for a display of decoding, plotting, and map analysis. Any suggestions there are appreciated, too. 

Best regards,
Tom Hanagan
