USS Anchorage (LSD 36) Reunion October 1-4, 2022 hasn't added a story.
Proud veterans of the United States Navy who served on the USS Anchorage (LSD 36) are pleased to offer you a unique opportunity to show your support. Our ship, commissioned in 1969 and decommissioned in 2003, saw 34 years of honorable service and completed 19 Western Pacific deployments from her homeports of San Diego and Long Beach. She earned the distinction of being the most decorated dock landing ship on the West Coast.
USS Anchorage (LSD 36) transported U.S. Marines home from Vietnam, assisted in various humanitarian responses, and had supported every major operation in Afghanistan and Iraq. She was one of the ships that responded to the bombing of the USS Cole (DDG 67) in Yemen, and just before decommissioning she participated in the largest amphibious task force ever assembled to combat global terrorism.
Now we are organizing a reunion of those who served on USS Anchorage (LSD 36), but we cannot do it without your help. The reunion weekend in San Diego is scheduled for October 1-4 2022, and we are seeking your sponsorship support. Please help us commemorate this great ship, its important place in history, and our shared commitment in service to country. The year 2020 was significant, because that was the 10-year anniversary of the final sacrifice our ship made. After being decommissioned, she came out of retirement to be used as a target during the 2010 Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) naval training exercise. The RIMPAC Exercise is the world's largest international maritime warfare exercise, vital to the security of the USA and our global allies.
We welcome financial assistance to defray the cost of hosting our reunion. We need to pay for resources such as group transportation, guided tours, and meals. There will be a Welcome Reception, Main Reunion Event, and several group events. If there is enough support, we can provide door prizes, print t-shirts, challenge coins, or caps. We would also like to offer a wall mural showing photos of the ship through its 34 years of service that can be raffled as a memorable souvenir.
All support is given our enthusiastic “Thank You” on a highly visible board at check-in, and our sincere gratitude for years to come. Visit our website, LSD36.COM, to learn more.
