USS Mahan Association

I want to welcome all Shipmates past and present to the newly upgraded USS Mahan Association webpage. I was stationed aboard the DDG-42 from November 1980 to July 1984 and was discharged as a Gunner’s Mate Missiles Second Class. For those of you who knew me while I served on the ship, you may be in disbelief I am involved in any type of Association activities. The truth is, it took me 20 years to appreciate both my time in the Navy and my time aboard the USS Mahan.

As a registered non-profit organization the USS Mahan Association manages to exist solely on donations and sales from the Ship’s Store. I invite you all to become familiar with the website, search for Shipmates, participate in the forums, and visit the Ship’s Store. The 2017 reunion location and dates have been set for October 4th through the 7th in Branson, Missouri. All reunion information can be accessed in the Association website. It is my main goal to increase membership as well as membership attendance at the yearly Association Reunions.

I understand for those who served on more than one ship and for those who chose to pursue the Navy as a career, your time aboard the USS Mahan may have only been merely a stepping stone in your career. For those like me, the USS Mahan IS the Navy. So whether you were a 72, 42, 11, or a 364, a Snipe, Deck Ape, or a Twigit, we all have the common bond of serving on the USS Mahan. Hope to see many of you this year in Branson.
