Hello Shipmates and Associate Members:
According to the comments I received from attendees, the 2018 USS Hancock reunion was a "great success."
The hotel was beautiful; the hospitality room just the right size; unique and compelling tours tied history and
reality into one package. Attendees gave rave reviews to the New Dinner Theater and the WW I Museum.

THE LONE SAILOR STATUE...
The bronze statue is the creation of Stanley Bleifeld, the U.S. Navy Memorial's official sculptor. The statue contains
two pieces: the Sailor, who stands 7 feet tall and weighs approximately 1000 lbs, and his sea bag and cleat weighing
700 lbs. Currently there are eight Lone Sailor sites: one in Washington, DC; two in California, San Diego and San
Francisco; two in Norfolk, Virginia; one in Great Lakes, Illinois; one in West Haven, Connecticut; and one in Kirkland,
FYI... As part of the casting process, the bronze for the Lone Sailor was mixed with artifacts from eight
U.S. Navy ships provided by the curator for the Navy in the Naval Historical Center at the Washington Navy Yard.
The ships span the Navy's history, yielding small pieces of copper sheeting, spikes, hammock hooks and other fragments
from the post-revolutionary frigates the Constitution ("Old Ironsides") and the Constellation; the steamer
Hartford, flagship of Admiral David G. Farragut in the Civil War era; the battleship USS Maine; the iron-hulled
steamer/sailing ship USS Ranger; the World War II-era cruiser USS Biloxi and the aircraft carrier USS Hancock,
and the nuclear-powered submarine USS Seawolf. One last addition was a personal decoration from today's Navy, one
given to sailors in war and peace, the National Defense Service Medal. These bits of metal are now part of the
Lone Sailor. History and Image of the Long Sailor courtesy of the United States Navy Memorial Lone Sailor Outreach Program.
