Why Join the MASSEY Association?
Well if you are cruising through this Web site, then something got you to look for your old ship! There is an old saying that watching fellow shipmates at reunions rings true… the saying runs “You can leave the Navy but the Navy doesn’t leave you!” It’s true and attending one reunion will make you a believer. There is something special about being a Navy sea going veteran, especially a Tin Can Sailor! Living in close, cramped, hot and freezing berthing compartments with cold showers and no privacy … on a “small boy” that can rock about for weeks… tends to make you very appreciative of the comforts you have today and of those past fellow shipmates who shared those days with you… Shipmates who never let you down and always put in the extra effort to help you out!
The membership form is self-explanatory. Just print the page, fill in the form, enclose a check for the $10.00 annual dues, and mail the form and your check to the MASSEY Association Dues Coordinator at the address on the form. In return you will receive an annual MASSEY Association membership card, a copy of our membership roster of fellow shipmates, the email address listing for those with email capability, and our periodic newsletters that you will find full of interesting news and coming events. It’s the best $10 deal you will find so come join us!
