We have included a new Members Only page to the web site. It will be available to ACTIVE Members only. The TCHVA
Board is looking for ways to provide some value to our former shipmates by including some tailored info and/or data that may
be interesting and of value to Members of TCHVA.
order to view this page, you will need a Logon email address and Password. Our Secretary will be emailing all
current members with the required Logon email address and password. We ask that you please respect all other current
active members by not sharing this information with anyone else.
this page is new and evolving, we are considering other types of information we may want to limit to active members only.
The Logon address and Password will be included in the Welcome Aboard email to any new member. The Logon data will be
changed at least annually, with active members so advised.
thank you in advance for your cooperation.
11 January 2021:
Please take a moment to check out the TCHVA June 2021 Reunion brochure link located in the 2021
TCHVA Reunion page. The link to that page is to the left! Should be another wonderful event. Keeping
our fingers crossed that the Covid pandemic will be a thing of the past by then. Cheers!
2021: Happy New Year to all! Hopefully 2021 will lead to a better year, with an end to this terrible
Covid pandemic in time for us to enjoy the June 2021 TCHVA Reunion in Herndon VA/Washington DC greater area. One sad
note is that we had to drop a number of you from our Membership Listing as your membership lapsed at the end of 2020.
But the good news is that it is very easy to renew for as little as $20.00 for a 2-year membership. So please take a
moment to renew via the JOIN TCHVA link to the left and start 2021 off on the right foot! Looking forward
to seeing you back onboard.
28 December 2020:
As we come to a close on what has been a very challenging 2020, here's wishing you all a very Happy & Healthy (and hopefully
far better) New Year in 2021. Keeping our hopes up that the Covid pandemic will be under control such that we can hold
our much anticipated June 2021 TCHVA Reunion in the Herndon VA/Wasington DC area. We have a few more events to nail
down in our planning, but for the most part we have a very solid and entertaining venue planned for all. So again, keep
those fingers crossed!
And as a reminder, please take a moment to check out the Member Listing
tab to see if your membership is expiring (or has expired) in 2020. If your name has (2020) indicated, then you are
one of those. So please take a moment to renew (or join) the TCHVA, only $20.00 for two years, and we look forward to
seeing you at the reunion!
24 December 2020:
On behalf of the TCHVA Board of Directors and to all our members, shipmates, families and friends, we'd like to wish you all
a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and most importantly Healthy & Safe New Year in 2021. Hoping Santa brings us
relief from the pandemic so we can enjoy our TCHVA Reunion planned for this upcoming June. So stay safe, keep your fingers
crossed, and hope for the best come June 2021!
7 Dec 2020:
On this date in 1941 our Navy suffered terrible losses in the attack on Pearl Harbor. Today is a time to reflect on
the sacrifices of those who lost their lives on that fateful day. We shall never forget the day that lived in infamy,
and spawned the rise of an even more powerful Navy that helped carry our country to victory in WWII.
23 November 2020:
On behalf of the entire TCHVA Board, we'd like to extend our heartiest wishes to all for a most happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
We certainly understand what this continuing COVID pandemic is doing to our everyday lives, family gatherings, and travel
plans. So if you are planning a gathering or travel, please take all the recommended precautions and safeguards.
We want you to be safe and ready to join us at our 2021 TCHVA Reunion this coming June 2021. Hopefully by then we'll
have the Safe to Sail order. Cheers!

Our hopes are the current COVID-19 projections will still allow us to move this event along, but as always, we will proceed
as the medical "experts" (of which there seems to be no shortage of at the moment) predict or recommend. The
health and safety of our shipmates and family remain at the forefront of our planning efforts.
2020: Please take a moment to visit the TCHVA Comemorative
Plaque page to see the final design approved by a vote of those who donated to this effort. Our plan is to have this

membership expired in 2019, or will expire in 2020. For folks whose membership expired in 2019, you should have received
an email indicating your membership expired and asking you to consider renewing. We will be removing those names from
the Member Listing on 31 March 2020, so please consider renewing so we can keep you on our list of active TCHVA members.
