Some Reunion Innovations
During the course of the Reunion Events
we are going to attempt to video record as much of what happens as we can.
Primarily, the focus will be on the Hospitality Room, the Welcome Dinner and
the Farewell Dinner.
A large portion of this will be taking
place in the Hospitality Room. The focus will be on obtaining a short bio
from each member in attendance. To this end we will be asking you to
furnish the following information in your own words:
- Your Name – Last name first, first
name last. Just as you used to.
- Rate/Rank attained prior to
departure from the Whetstone.
- Dates of service onboard….Month and
Year if possible.
- Present status. i.e., Married,
- A short description of life events
- A Memorable moment or two while
These and all of the recorded events
will be transferred to DVD so that everyone will have an upfront and
personal keepsake of the 2006 USS Whetstone (LSD-27) Reunion. The tours
will not be on video. However, if anyone has a digital Video camera and
would like to share their scenes, we would be most appreciative.
There will be a charge for the DVD’s which has not been determined.
