Now is the time to be making your plans to attend the reunion in Idaho. Call
in your reservation for rooms directly to the hotel, and check the registration
form for tour information. Please send your registration and check
directly to the Association, at 12460 Dusty Road, Franklinton, LA 70438.
Time is running out to get your registrations in by July 1st. John
Mucci, our host, informs us that Yellowstone admittance passes can be purchased
one block from the motel where we'll be staying, and day passes are
available. If anyone wishes to bring their children or grandchildren, it
will be fine,
as we are a family oriented organization.
We have been fortunate enough to pick up several new members in response
to our reunion letter, and some are attending the reunion to renew old friendships
and make new ones with shipmates! We received a great picture of the
Guadalupe from CDR Robert Rumph, who was supply officer from 1959-1961.
Unfortunately, he can't attend this reunion, but sent the picture for the
auction, and sends his regards to all.
We encourage all our shipmates to make contributions to the newsletter by
sending their best - and worst - time aboard the Guad; appropriate jokes,
and recipes from their wives. Please send these to the editor, shipmate
Chaplain Ed Winters and his wife, Joan, visited with us in April. He
is having both knees replaced in June, as well as cataract surgery. They'd
welcome your prayers and cards. Wishing you all a summer full of joy
and sunshine, and may the Lord be your co-pilot.

Mailing the reunion letters to inactive members seems to be paying off. We
have had inquiries from seven shipmates about the reunion, and four of them
plan to attend. Four have also become active members.
The yearbooks are out, and they are great! A wonderful remembrance
of the reunion,- or a pictorial description of it, for those who couldn't
attend! There are extras available, by mail, and we'll have some for
sale at the reunion, along with hats, pins, shirts and jackets.
Registration for the reunion has been slow, so far. I wonder if a lot
of people don't like to commit that much money so far in advance. If
that's the case, please just send us your registration form, with a note
that you'll pay at the reunion, and make your hotel reservation directly
with the hotel. Just, if you do this, please, let us know if you can't attend
- in advance, so we're not obligated for bus seats and dinners for folks
who don't attend! Also, if you do send in your check, and can't attend, for
some reason, let us know, and we'll refund all of your money. We really
need a count by July 1st, to reserve busses large enough, for the tours,
and number of plates, to tell the motel for the banquet. Hope to see you

Does anyone remember him - or have his address??

This news item appeared in our local newspaper “The Waterbury Republican”
on January 22, 2004. I thought it might be of interest to those who
served on the Guadalupe.
“Oil Tanker Company Tried to Hide Dumping”
Newark, N.J.- A tanker ship operator pleaded guilty Wednesday to an attempted
cover-up of illegal dumping and agreed to pay a 4.2 million fine. OMI
Corp. also is to be on probation for three years, under a plea agreement
with federal prosecutors to a charge of preparing false documents.
The Stamford, Conn.-based company is to be sentenced May 3 by US District
Judge Katharine S. Hayden. The case involved thousands of gallons of
waste oil and sludge dumped at sea from one of OMI’s tankers, the Guadalupe.

Due to a recent health set back, I want to inform all the members that I
will be unable to sponsor the Guadalupe Reunion in San Antonio in 2005.

What You Eat
This sums it up: For those of you who watch what you eat.....
Here’s the final word on nutrition and health. It’s a relief to know
the truth after all those conflicting medical studies.
1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the
British or Americans.
2. The Mexicans eat lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British
3. The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks
than the British or Americans.
4. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart
attacks than the British or Americans.
5. The Germans drink a lot beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer
fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
Conclusion: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what
