Financial Help

The USS Lynde McCormick Reunion Association is now an official non profit organization with bylaws. It consists of a board of 5 elected representatives and the former crewmates of the USS Lynde McCormick DDG 8. The USS Lynde McCormick Reunion Association was voted into existence on September 17, 2004 by the shipmates in attendance at the 2004 reunion in San Diego. (see bylaws page)

We need financial help by donations from you, our shipmates.

The reunion association plans and implements the reunions and supports this web site. The association costs consist of postage, office supplies, banking, etc. This is a non profit organization and no one gets a salary or benefits. (no free rooms, etc.) Any of you who wish to get that wonderful feeling of satisfaction by donating $10, $20, or more, to the support of this reunion association and this web site, now have the opportunity to pay online with a credit card
