Welcome! Friday 8/17/2018     12:24 PM  

Welcome aboard!

This site is dedicated to all who served aboard the USS Kretchmer, 1943 - 1973.

The USS Kretchmer Reunion Group was formed in 1988 when WWII Kretchmer crewman Dwane "Red" Robinson and his wife Rosie took the initiative, did the work and held the first reunion in their hometown of Emporia, Kansas. We have held a reunion every year since. We are proud to have on board crew members from the years 1943 through 1973.

This site is here for anyone with ties to the USS Kretchmer DE/DER329 to find old shipmates, to communicate with and share stories and photos and to get updates on mates, first mates and family. Our ultimate goal is to get you to attend a reunion!


 

Reunion 2017

The 2017 reunion in San Diego was a rousing success, thanks to the efforts of Joe Justo and Mike Repp. We had a scare prior to the reunion dates with the original hotel cancelling our event due to some renovation issues, but all went well at the Handlery Hotel. A loud "Thank You" to Joe and Mike from all who attended.
