"WELCOME ABOARD, FROM JACK HAMMOND"

MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION

My name is Jack Hammond and I served on the Tortuga LSD 26 September 1950 to March 1954. We have formed an association of former crew members and to date have located over 406 members ranging in time mostly from WW2 to final decommissioning in 1970 for the original Tortuga LSD 26 and a few from today's TORTUGA LSD 46. I am the current Membership Chairman. The Association would like to extend an invitation to you to join our ranks. We hold an annual reunion and have a lot of fun at them. Old shipmates are reunited and the sea stories flow. We publish a newsletter quarterly for paid up members throughout the year to keep our members informed of events that they need to know about and also to allow them a place to share any memories (Sea Stories) that they may wish to share.

We have a "Ship's Store" which provides memorabilia such as caps, polo shirts and other items that members may purchase. All have the ships name and hull # displayed, we also have an online "Ships Store" Order Form. May we include your name on our roster? We are sure there are members already on it that you served with, if so please fill out the form provided and send it back to me. In return you will receive a Ships History, a roster of our members and some other material of interest. A pre-addressed envelope is provided for your convenience. We will be pleased to add you to our roster and newsletter mailing list. Also enclosed is a packet of some of our past newsletters. Hope you enjoy the sea stories. My address both snail and E-mail are provided below. Please also include a check for $15 made out to U.S.S. Tortuga LSD 26/46 Association. This is your initiation fee & first year’s annual dues. We also ask that you contribute an annual $15 to keep your membership current on January first of each New Year. This is needed to cover cost of printing and mailing newsletters and is tax deductible as is the initiation fee.

Even if you decide not to become a member please fill out and return the form anyway and we will still add you to the roster as a service to your shipmates who may want to contact you. You will also be placed on our newsletter mailing list so you may receive reunion announcements. You do not have to be a paid up member to attend reunions. You will be as welcome as any other shipmate if you do attend. It is our hope that you can attend and perhaps be reunited with that shipmate you had so much fun with on Liberty. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than seeing the great smiles that such an occasion generates and knowing that we have played a part in making it possible.
