USS JOHN PAUL JONES (ALL SHIPS) REUNION REVIEW

Our 12th reunion was held in NASHVILLE, TN 16-20 April with a turn out of 112 attendees representing DD230, DD932, DDG32 & DDG53 guests and spouses including 53 shipmates at the Holiday Inn Select (Nashville Airport). Our shipmate host, Don Wall, set up a great set of included and optional tours of Nashville history and the music industry including the GRAND OLE OPRY where the USS JOHN PAUL JONES Assoc. was recognized at the radio show. We lunched on the Paddle Wheeler General Jackson and held our wrap up banquet at the hotel.

A special Memorial service was held at the Nashville National Cemetery for our departed shipmates complete with Navy Honor Guard and a church choir.
