Our Reunions


The Nashville Reunion dates have changed due to the COVID-19 Virus. The 2021 dates have been changed to April 27 - May 1, 2022.
After this reunion, the 2024 Reunion will be held in conjunction with the Tin Can Sailors Reunion. At this point in time, the location and dates have yet to be scheduled.

Ship's Store


The Ship's Store is now closed for good.
Over the years we have sold tons of t-shirts and a bunch of ball caps. With the sales tax rules in Florida and issues getting product, it was easier to get out of the business of selling the various items versus navigating the rules of operating in Florida.
 The USS Lawrence Association is incorporated as a 501.c.19 non-profit veterans group in Florida. Donations are not tax deductible.  A copy of our Constituion and Bylaws are available upon written request.
