Save the Date for our 2018 Jacksonville Reunion

It is time to start planning to attend the 2018 USS Lloyd Thomas Reunions.  The reunion will be held from Wednesday, March 14 through Saturday, March 17 in Jacksonville, Florida.  We thank Ed and Chrissie Bender for offering to host the 2018 reunion.  They have been busy  working on the hotel and tour arrangements for us.

We have settled with the Marriott Hotel at 4670 Salisbury Road, Jacksonville FL as the reunion hotel.  This hotel has everything we need for the reunion and is in the best location for our planned events.  The hotel is giving us until March 9 to make reservations, but you may make your reservations now if you wish.

 Book your group rate for USS Lloyd Thomas Reunion.
