Welcome Aboard, Shipmate! 

Our main purpose for this Association is to celebrate with pride those that have served aboard the USS MASSEY through her nearly 30 years of duty that include three wars coupled with the many years of training to keep the ship and crew in a constant state of combat readiness. A special remembrance of our association is for the man who gave his life in the Battle of Midway and then his name to the ship, LCDR Lance Massey .

We maintain these traditions through our association’s activities like this web site and reunions. Behind the scenes are many men and women that have dedicated their time to make this Association the best as we embark upon our 26th reunion this October in Nashville, Tennessee. If you have never attended one of our reunions, please consider this one! It’s marvelous to witness the great camaraderie with the crew, wives, son & daughters as they meet again or the first time. We are very pleased to have welcomed back widows of our crewmen each year.

Our web site offers the history, pictures, reunion news and a place find old shipmates or to ask questions. We are sure as you browse our pages you will recall events and times that you would like to share.
