SAVE THE DATE....Our 2019 USS Emmons Reunion is set for September 26-29 in Gettysburg, PA. The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War and was also the inspiration for President Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address." Our Friday outing will include a visit to the National Military Park, as well as the National Cemetery where we'll honor the fallen Emmons shipmates with our annual memorial service. Registration deadline is August 29. Learn more and access the registration information by visiting our Reunions Page.
