Served on the Sammy G May 83 - March 85 in R2, 31A. Was on the SAT/BAF team most of the time I was onboard just to get out of the quarterdeck watch.

Freshly out of the Gulf in 1988, we had the pleasure of mooring with her. First females we've seen in a while...much fun! She had aerobics instructors, real boxing ring and movie night accompany by members of the other sex was what the Dr. Ordered ;)))

Today is the deadline for registration for the Reunion, and a few people have been asking if it's too late to register. It's not too late!

Just go to http://www.samuelgompersreunion/ and print out the two forms you need. You will see on the registration form there is a late fee of $30. until end of August...I put that ...there because I really need a good head count before I order the Gompers schwag and pay the tour company next week.

I will waive the extra five dollar fee for everybody who gets their registration forms in by Friday August 6...those who wait longer to register will pay $30.00 instead of $25.00
