2023 Reunion

27 August 2023

The 2023 TCHVA Reunion celebrating the 50th anniversary of Thomas C Hart commissioning has come to a close. Over 40 former shipmates along with close to 40 spouses, family members and friends were able to participate throughout the event that ran from 22 – 26 August 2023 in Norfolk/Virginia Beach. Close to 90 attendees joined together on Saturday, 26 August 2023 for a banquet featuring two guest speakers, former Commanding Officer Captain David Rollins and Plankowner LT Kerry Long were guest speakers. The 5+ day itinerary can be viewed at the 2023 Reunion Brochure below.


A big THANKS to all who took the time to travel to Norfolk & Virginia Beach for the Reunion, and we hope you all enjoyed the event and your travel home was a safe one. While there were some challenges, Hart crewmembers still remembered how to make the best of those situations. Folks who were there know what we mean. We will be developing a section in the site once we have accumulated the necessary portfolio of pictures that highlights places visited and friendships renewed and furthered. So stay tuned!!!

Of course there still could be some folks who choose to not reserve their spot, and just show up for the event, which is GREAT as well. Folks will be there to register you, sign you up for tours or the Saturday Banquet, or simply choose to mix and mingle with former shipmates and friends.
