10 November 2018: Please take time to check out the 2019 Reunion
Planning page for the latest info ad brochure for the TCHVA Reunion in Rapid City, SD from 4 - 9 June 2019! One key
date to plan for now is 4 May 2019 which is the preliminary deadline date
to reserve your room and sign up for excursions and outings. You may still sign up for rooms and/or excursions after
that date but most likely those requests will be handled on an "as available" basis. But please don't worry,
we will do whatever is necessary to ensure anyone who wishes to attend will indeed have that opportunity.
6 October 2018: Preps for our 2019 TCHVA Reunion in Rapid City SD keep
moving along. We have been working closely with an event planner, and we're in the process of finalizing an agenda,
costs, and a registration process. So stay tuned, it keeps getting closer!
14 August 2018: Quick 2019 Reunion planning update - our event planner
has all of our inputs and is beginning to lay out an agenda as well as process for registration for the event. So stay
tuned, more to follow as the plan comes into focus. Hope one and all are having a nice summer.
26 June 2018: OK Gang, we're now less than a year away from our
TCHVA Reunion scheduled 4 - 8 June 2019 in Rapid City S.D. We are working diligently with a professional event planner
to put together an itinerary that we hope will have something for everyone in a part of the country rich in history.
Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, the Badlands, Custer National Park, Black Hills National Forest, Deadwood, Wall Drug, etc.
are just some of the sites we are looking to pull together to take advantage of a part of the country many of us have not
experienced. We are also looking at trolley tours of Rapid City, the famous Walk of the Presidents, dining venues and
maybe even a nightlife adventure.
So please look over some materials in the 2019 Reunion
Planning Link on the left, on our Facebook page, or just Google something on your own to see what is available in the area.
It should be a great time for all. Pencil it on your calendars now and hope to see many of you there.
2018: Check out the Newsletter tab on the left
for the latest edition of the TCHVA Newsletter. We try to publish one several times per year, and if you have any item(s)
that you think would be of interest, pease don't hesitate to forward to Dave Neimeyer, our editor-in-chief. Of note
is the fact that over 400 copies of these newsletters go out to anyone for whom has ever submitted their info to our website.
So even if you are not a member of TCHVA, we still consider you shipmates and want to get the word out to you.
So let Dave hear from you, and as always, we invite you to join TCHVA to possibly
reconnect with former shipmates, make new acquaintances, and get the gouge for our reunions. The next reunion will be
in June 2019 in Rapid City, SD. There is a lot to see and do in that area, rich in history, and should be a really enjoyable
a moment to check out some links to Rapid City SD and surrounding areas which will form the itinerary for our June 2019 TCHVA
Reunion. You can find those on the 2019 Reunion Planning page link on the left.

rewarding a career. And any man who would be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think
can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy."
