2015 Reunion - Virginia Beach

Our 9th USS L. Y. Spear (AS-36) Association Reunion is in the books, and what a great time it was as we went "Back to the Beach"!  We had 108 people in attendance this year with a record number of 14 PLANK OWNERS!  We were also honored to have former Commanding Officer Ernest Toupin in attendance, as well as family members of our ship's namesake, Lawrence York Spear.  Thanks to everyone for making this reunion such a success!
