The USS Gunston Hall Reunion Association was founded in November of 1993 for the purpose of re-uniting shipmates who served on the ship and to hold reunions. After the initial meeting in 1993, we have had reunions in each of the odd numbered years. For specifics on these past events, see the "Reunions" section on this site.

More than 3,600 shipmates spanning the 27 years the ship was in service (1943 to 1970) have been indentified. All who served on her are de facto members of the Gunston Hall Reunion Association. To attend the reunions it is necessary to be an active member. Active members also receive our periodic newsletters and may request searches of our database to contact old friends.

If you have served on the Gunston Hall and have never contacted us, please do so in order that we may confirm you in our database or add you to it and put you on "active" status. If you have information on other shipmates, please let us know that as well.
