REDFIN Reunion was held on October 2-5, 1997 at Lake Wright Resort in
REDFIN Committee consisted of John Williams, Joe Schwartz, Ken Small and
Pete Amunrud. They spent many
months locating and getting in touch with the REDFIN crewmen, and planning
attendance was great, with 127 Crewmen plus their guests.
There were eleven World War II Crewmen that attended.
They were; Dean Adams, Merlin Rue Adcock, Ted Breisch, George
Carinder, Bruce Graham, John Gruner, Steve Petreshock, Nick Petronzio,
Lloyd Prickett, Red Schwertfeger and George Walrath.
We got to
tour one of the Attack Submarines, either USS Montpelier (SSN-765) or USS
Atlanta (SSN-712). Later at
the Dinner Buffet, CDR Maurice (Moe) Montana, CO of Atlanta was our guest
We had many door prizes raffled off, the food was great, the hospitality of Lake Wright was the best. The best thing of all was the kindling of old friendships with buddies that were once close as family members.
