USS Little Rock Association's Annual Reunion

The annual USS Little Rock Association Reunion is a highlight for hundreds of USSLRA members each year.

Typically, reunions are held in Buffalo, New York every second year, and elsewhere throughout the USA on alternate years. The reunion draws members together from literally all over the world.

Shipmates, spouses, children, grandkids and "significant others" find this event has something for everyone.

NOTE....

The 2019 Reunion (our 27th ! ! !) tentatively is scheduled for Jacksonville/Mayport Florida in September. Details to follow.

USS LITTLE ROCK ASSOCIATION'S LADIES' AUXILIARY

having women as part of our group. In fact, the ladies of the Association have their own group within the organization. Click below to get
the latest from the Auxiliary and check back often for updates on how this spirited group interacts with the Association.

different aspects of the USS Little Rock, her life, her crew and her adventures.

 LITTLE ROCK's helicopter looking "squared away".
Who is he?  Anyone know his name?

If you have a clue about this, shoot us an e-mail via the "Mystery Photo #29" topic on
