USS Greeneville 25th Anniversary Reunion

 

Several activies are planned  over the July 4th weekend for the current and former crew visiting Greeneville. Bob Rediske, a Post 1990 member, met with several USS Greenevilles's submariners at Aubrey's this week to discuss the activites and remimisce.

USS Greeneville is a Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine,  built at the  Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company in Newport News, Virginia, on 14 December 1988,  her keel was laid down on 28 February 1992. She was launched on 17 September 1994.

The USS Greeneville was named after Greeneville TN , the home of 17th United States President Andrew Johnson, after local residents, businesses  and government officials began a campaign for a submarine to be named after their town, rather than a large metropolitan area.

VFW Post 1990 donated over 30 Car model kits worth over $700 to Roger Hull, Volunteer Coordinator of the Veterans Administration's  Crafts Room in Johnson City.

These kits , as well as our paracord kits Post 1990 provided earlier this year,  will help veterans in long term care be more active and engaged. It is our way of  thanking  them for their service to our country.

Money raised from our Spring Poppy Distribution  and other activities as well as additional help from our community, retailers and sponsors are added to Post 1990's Relief Fund which is used to pay for these kits.

We want to thank everyone who has made this Model Car Project a success though their donations.

Post 1990 celebrated its 75th year of supporting Greene County's Veterans.

We received the Diamond Jubilee Award from our National Commander, Harold Roesch II, congratulating us on this historic event in our Post's history.  

It was with great sadness that we had to postpone our 75th anniversary celebration that was planned.  This was decided out of concern for those that might want to attend but are being cautious about either spreading or contracting the Covid-19 virus


Rest assured that we are working for Veterans as much as possible during this pandemic and that we will have a Great 75th Celebration as soon as it is safe.

Thank you for your continued support of VFW Post 1990.
