USS Greene Association Reunion began on Monday, September 16th with registration. The Reunion was hosted by Glenn & Laverne Herman. Fifty-five persons attend and 29 were former USS Greene shipmates. On Tuesday all enjoyed a sightseeing tour of “The Strip” including the “Fremont Experience”, a laser light show. Wednesday was a “free” day and many ventured to the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon National Park.

Thursday started with the business meeting. The next Reunion will be hosted by Jack and Linda Plasterer and will be held near Buffalo, New York in September 2015. Joining with another ship to help share Reunion expenses will be investigated. Greene Association Dues for 2014 – 2015 will remain at $20.00. Members voted to make five hundred dollar donations to U.S. Navy Memorial Association and Tin Can Sailors.

The Thursday evening banquet began with a hospitality hour and then Rick Roy took a group picture. The banquet concluded with an opportunity raffle and there were many lucky winners.  

The Greene Reunion concluded Friday morning with all looking forward to the 2015 Reunion.
