Are there any plank owners still with us? It would be great if one can make it to the launch of the new John Basilone.

There are several plankowners on the roster. Some are inactive but time is the factor. They could be gone by the time the launching and commissioning actually happen.

latest from BIW

Hi Chris,
We held a start fabrication ceremony on May, 22. The next milestone will be the official keel laying, which is scheduled for some time in in the fall of 2019. We’re very proud to be building a ship named for such an incredible hero!
Best of luck,
David

looks like the '19 reunion will be in Maine
stay tuned
