The Big Nickel Site Updates
for 2018

21 April, 2018
  • Some of the links to other Adams class ships on the Links page no longer work.  I've remove the links themselves so you don't go someplace you don't expect, though I've left the ship names there.
10 March, 2018
  • The March 2018 Newsletter is now available.  You can open it here.  This is a PDF file and you will need a PDF reader.  I will be emailing the newsletter to those shipmates with valid email addresses.  If you don't get an emailed copy of the newsletter and are registered on the site, please check the Bad Email Addresses.

  • Something is amiss with the 2016 Reunion pictures.  I'm investigating and hope to have a solution soon.
  • If you filled out the 2018 Reunion Survey and are in the "probably" or "not-sure-yet" categories and have changed your decision, please let me know your decision and I'll update the database.
16 February, 2018
  • Made some changes to the 2018 Reunion Survey.  Removed references to a possible Mayport tour and made it for a general tour.  Also added some processing changes to keep people from filling out the survey doing it multiple times.  As always, let me know if you have any issues when filling out the survey.  If you have filled it out and would like to make changes, contact me with those changes and I'll make the updates.
4 February, 2018
  • Decided to add a comment section to the Reunion Survey form for those who might have special information to pass on when filling out the survey.  Things like having guests attend only certain functions and not the entire reunion, thus making the guest (potentially) not have to pay the reunion guest fee.  Or any other information you'd like to pass on.  It's still a little rough, but useable.  If you have already filled out the survey and have any comments you'd like added, please contact me with them and I'll put them into the database.
17 January, 2018
  • Updated family taps information for Betty Jones, wife of GMG1 Mike Jones (65 - 68), adding a link to her obituary.  Thanks to RD2 Danny Timm (65 - 68) for the update information.
31 December, 2017
  • Updated the site copyright to 2018 on the HomePort page.
  • Please let me know if you see something missing from the site (pictures, links not working, test that might be missing/screwy).  I've been having issues with my desktop and now my laptop and have had to resort to site backups and it's possible something has gone missing.
  • Have a safe and prospersous New Year and I hope to see a lot of new (and old) faces at the 2018 Reunion in Jacksonville, Florida.  If you are planning on attending the reunion and haven't yet done so, please take some time to fill out the 2018 Reunion Survey.
