Some past Reunion Information:

The U.S.S. Hancock CV/CVA-19 Association currently holds a reunion, for its members, every two years.

We attempt to hold our reunions in different geographical areas to equalize travel costs as much as possible. In addition, interim mini-reunions are held by various divisions and groups. See the Reunion Information page.

Our association was founded by Edmund Orchowski of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a baker during Hancock's World War II service; he is still a very active member.

If you are interested in or are planning a Local Mini-Reunion for the Crew of the U.S.S. Hancock CV/CVA-19, and would like to post a Reunion Notice you can add your Notice to our Mini-Reunion Page.

Keep in mind that you should already have the Plans outlined and planned BEFORE you add it to our Mini Reunions Notices Page.

To add your Mini-Reunion notice, please go to the Add-a-Notice Page. If you are only browsing, don't go to the Add-a-Notice Page unless you have intentions of adding a Notice as your presence there will be counted, and we need an accurate count - Thanks
