Welcome to the Reunion Committee Website

UPDATED 6/23/2017

The tentative dates for the 2018 All-Hands Reunion in Charleston, SC are March 8 - 11.

We are currently waiting on the signed contract before sending out the reunion information.

There is a Facebook page USS Von Steuben (SSBN 632) Alumni that is useful in getting in touch with VS members.

It is not associated with the Reunion Committee but I do monitor postings.  A posting by Scott Starr noted that Michael Gail Chadwick had died.

He was a TM striker in the decommissioning crew. He has been added to the Memorial List.

 

The Ship's Store is closed.

Cake Cutting at 2014 All-Hands Reunion Picnic

Gary Brewer, Jim Norton and Bob Neider cut the cake

We are here to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the commissioning of the USS Von Steuben SSBN 632.

 Some of us here today were there during the commissioning ceremony on 30 September 1964.  SSBN 632 was not just a hull number.  For many of us it was our home address.  Now the old neighborhood is torn down and all that is left is memories.

Ah, Yes voices of the past

Speak to our hearts today.

And give to us encouragement

To sacrifice and pray

For the principles our founders stressed-

Truth, Justice, Loyalty-

That this land, our land, may ever stand

A nation of the free

A quote by General Colin Powell says:

No one has done more to prevent conflict – no one has made a greater sacrifice for the cause for Peace-than you, America’s proud missile submarine family.  You stand tall among our heroes of the cold war.
