This year's reunion is April 29 - May 1, 2022.

The reunion will take place at Short Stay Recreation Area Joint Base Charleston.

Located on Lake Moultrie, Short Stay Recreation Area offers recreational lodging, RV park, beach and lake access and much more! Admission is available to eligible Department of Defense card holders


Please reach out to Ron Cochran for lodging accommodations. You connect with Ron by clicking here. He will start taking reservations beginning January 3rd.


There are 12 villas and as long as one retiree reserves them he/she can reserve all 12. The Villas are like apartments including bedrooms, living room, kitchen etc.:


  • 2 two bedroom. $86.00 night
  • 8 three bedroom $97.00 per night
  • 2 four bedroom $110.00 per night
These need to be paid at time of reservation and if we book all of them it would be non refundable. Goal is to share and split the cost.

The planning committee is hammering out the details. Here is what we have so far...

  • They are looking for a volunteer for the entertainment, food and base liaison.
  • The agenda is still being worked on. However, we will have a BBQ at the base pavilion. We will have a dinner banquet. We will have a memory lane, so bring your ship nostalgia. A bus tour to old Charleston mansions may be on the agenda.
  • This will not be expensive as James is looking for sponsors for donations.
  • James will also be contacting the new Santa Barbara and invite some of their crew as well as the city of Santa Barbara. He is also coordinating with the base MWR for multi-day visitors passes as well as they waive the military states requirement for the villas.
  • PM Ron through Facebook if you plan to attend and let him know what type lodging you want, and if you are retired or a vet.
