Charles F Adams class US Reunion -
Lets Get Together
A number for Adam's Class ships have decided to hold their next reunion in Jacksonville, Florida in 2011. Looking forward to the possibility that the class name sake, exUSS Charles F Adams, DDG-2 may be on its way to Jacksonville as a naval museum. The City Council of Jacksonville, Florida passed a Resolution supporting the establishment of that Naval Museum in Jacksonville.
