USS Little Rock Association's Annual Reunion

  • 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....

Our 2021 reunion, conditions permitting, will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Buffalo, from September 8th to 12th. Questions or comments may be addressed to our Reunion Chairman, Ray Cutter.

USS Little Rock Association's Ladies' Auxiliary

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.
