Hey there shipmates, it's that time again! Get this information out to all those in your address book, make a few phone calls, whatever it takes to let your buddies know that the party is going on. Even if you can't come this year, you can help by getting off your sorry behind and getting the word around! I hate running into someone off the Jimmy K. and hearing them say, "dang, I wish I had known everybody was getting together!"

If you've been to a Jimmy K. reunion before, you know how dang much fun it is. If you haven't been... well, my command of the language is inadequate to fully explain the sensation that comes along with a three day liberty call surrounded by a squirrelly bunch of mischievous, reprobate, shipmates from multiple generations of service on the same dang boat!  And in a city where no one knows you, too! Yee hah!

USS James K Polk Lapel Pins will be available at the reunion for $5.00 contact Rob Lamarre for how many you would like
