If you are interested in finding or meeting up with
your old shipmates, you should check out USSVI.

Would you like to set up a USS RICHARD B. RUSSELL (SSN-687) reunion?  You may want to consider
scheduling it via the USSVI in conjunction with their annual conference.  As you will note on the new Little
Rock, AK USSVI site, information regarding points of contact, key telephone numbers and other information
essential to coordinating a successful reunion is already posted, and as of the time of this writing, 12 boats
are already listed for reunions.  If you are interested in setting up a reunion and would like me to dedicate
space on this website for that purpose, please, don't hesitate to ask.   If you need information on how to set

yours for the asking.  
To those of you who have been anxious to get a reunion going, here is your chance to run
with the ball over the next several months.

Your crusty, old and barnacled, "Doc" MacDonald
