U.S.S. Allen M. Sumner DD-692
The 2007 Reunion - Reunion 19
20-23 September 2006 - Four Points Hotel, Milwaukee, Wisconsin


Just ask any of the nearly 100 people who attended. Of course, we did our usual thing-- shoot the bull, er, I mean conversing, and sampling some of Milwaukee's finest suds. Those who took the tour, reported seeing Milwaukee from the water- Great tour! The weather couldn't have been better, it was beautiful. Those who ventured into the city, said it was a beautiful city- that was the report from DeeDee Boland.
