Thirteen crew members from WATCHMAN attended the reunion in San Diego. The weather was great and it took no time at all for everyone to shift into the nostalgia mode. It always amazes me how people come together after so many years and pick up right where they left off. A bond is also readily established with crewmen who served at different times.
As reunion photos are edited, I will include them on this page.
