U.S.S. Allen M. Sumner DD-692
22nd Annual "All Hands" Reunion

May 6 - 9, 2010 - Holiday Inn Pensacola, Florida


Naval Aviation Memorial Chapel
Pensacola, Florida


Hello Shipmates, Ladies & Friends,

If you missed Pensacola, you missed a great reunion. What a super time we had. Friday's tour was just great. We had 2 tour boats, and about 75 of us had a wonderful 3 hour cruise around the harbor. We saw all the sights to be seen, and a number of dolphins. Our tour guide was very informative and interesting.

       The Memorial Service on Saturday morning was, as usual, very moving. We remembered all of Sumners' fallen heroes KIA, and all those since, spouses as well. Chaplain Breck Bregel USN was part of our ceremony, and we thank him for that.

        After the ceremony, we went to the National Aviation Museum--what a place. VERY interesting. We spent a few hours there, and barely scratched the surface of what was to be seen. What a great job they have done in putting it together. If you are ever in the Pensacola area, do yourself a favor and visit the museum.
