Location request for 2016 reunion

To: All Hands USS Altair AKS 32
From:Dick Stader MMCM  USN Ret.
Subject: 2016 Altair Reunion
It is that time of the year to start thinking again about another Reunion again and if we are going to have one and if so when and where.  I have only gotten so far two location suggestions and those are Nashville,Tenn. and Myrtle Beach,S.C., and we are open to other suggestions for locations, and while I know everyone would like it in their backyard that just can't happen so let's get serious about this and make a decision that works for everyone. Oh yes and by the way, we also need a chairman for this Reunion,so shipmates get your thinking caps on and let's get this Reunion underway. You can contact me by e-mail at ( or by phone at 262-654-9202 or respond to Charles at the Altair web site. Fair Winds And Following Seas to you all.   Dick Stader
