Welcome Aboard the USS Menard APA 201 Website

Glad to see you could stop by the official USS Menard APA 201 Reunion Association website. We have fixed the log book (remember to sign it), added the roster, put up a memorial page, and updated the entire site. So take a look around and if you have any questions or comments, feel free to email us. We hope you enjoy the new look.

In the year 1989 Jim Geralis from the USS Menard APA 201 decided to try and locate a few shipmates for a reunion. Twenty turned up in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Friendships were rekindled fast.

Since then we have had reunions in Fort Wayne, Indiana - Fresno, California - Mobile, Alabama - Oshkosh, Wisconsin - Kerrville, Texas - Seattle, Washington - Bardstown, Kentucky - Albuquerque, New Mexico - Carrolton, Georgia - Portland, Oregon - Branson, Missouri - Colorado Springs, Colorado, - Pensacola, Florida, - Postfalls, Idaho - Salt Lake City, Utah - Wichita, Kansas - Columbus, Indiana -  Tucson, Arizona - Reno Nevada - Laughlin, Nevada, and Fresno, California.

Reunions are hosted by a USS Menard shipmate in different states each year. If you are a crew or friend or family of a crew member, would you be interested in hosting a reunion? If so, please contact us.

Dues are $15.00 per year or $150.00 lifetime membership. Dues help support activities and letters to keep all informed. If you are interested please contact us for more information.

We acquired the ships roster in 1992 with names, rate and serial number only. In 1994 we learned about the computer telephone directory for the whole USA. With this directory we have acquired the correct address and telephone number for many shipmates.

If you can remember the names of any USS Menard shipmates not on our roster please send us a e-mail. It will help locate shipmates that we are looking for. You can check names against our ships roster on the roster page. There it has the crew members we have located and the ones we are still looking for. Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.

I hope you enjoy the website. Please don't forget to sign the log book. Check back often as the website is updated on a regular basis.
