2:    SHIP VISIT ANNOUNCED

The reunion committee is very excited to announce the good folks onboard
the Aircraft Carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) have granted our
request for a ship visit on Tuesday, September 30th, 2003. The Stennis
is one of the most powerful warships in the world and recently returned
from duty in Operation Enduring Freedom. Special Thanks to the Stennis
Commanding Officer; Captain James A. McDonell, Executive Officer;
Captain Mark Robert Sickert, Command Masterchief; CMDCM(SW) William T.
Etherton, Puplic Affairs Officer; LCDR Pat McNally, Puget Sound
Maintenance Manager Bryan Walde and Horne Reunion Treasurer Lou Maggi
for making this possible. You can read more about the Stennis, view
Stennis photos and an Operation Enduring Freedom slide show on the
Reunion Page:

www.usshorne.net/reunion2003.htm

Please Note: The ship visit will be dependent on ship's movement, future
deployment schedule and the Homeland Security Threat Level.

4.    COMMEMORATIVE COIN

The final proof for the Commemorative USS Horne 2003 Reunion coin has
been approved by Horne Reunion Committee members. We'll soon have the
artwork on display on the Website. The coin features an antique silver
finish.

One one side the Horne is depicted cutting through the waves with the
words "SEPTEMBER 28 - OCTOBER 1, 2003" and "1ST SHIP'S REUNION" and "SAN
DIEGO, CALIFORNIA". The same side also includes the Commisioning as well
as the Decommissioning Dates.

One the flip side of the coin... the Ship's Horne Owl Logo is featured
in color with Yellow, Blue and Red highlights. The Ship's Motto and the
name USS Horne DLG 30 and CG 30 are also included.

It's a great looking coin and will make an fantastic keepsake for this
historic, first ever USS Horne Reunion. The coin is INCLUDED in the $150
Shipmate Package. And extras will be made available at the reunion while
supplies last.

Again... the Coin artwork will soon be available for viewing on the
USSHorne.net Website. Check the site for updates.

5.    TIME IS RUNNING OUT

We've spoken to many people who said they did not realize payment for
the Reunion Packages had to be in by August 15th. YES... IT'S TRUE...
AUGUST 15TH IS ALMOST HERE. It's just about three weeks away now so be
sure to get your payments in as soon as possible. Before you know it,
we'll be swapping sea stories as the gentle waves of San Diego Bay lap
against our vessel. Print out an order form and send it in now! Get your
order form here:

6.    ROOM RESERVATIONS

ATTENTION ALL HANDS.

Reserve your room at the T&C Resort TODAY! You can reserve by telephone
or online. Your credit card will be charged for one night only. You may
cancel up to 72 hours before check-in time and receive a full refund. So
even if you are still not sure you are coming to the reunion... RESERVE
YOUR ROOM TODAY... if it turns out you can not join us... the hotel will
provide a full refund provided you cancel at least 72 hours before
check-in.

IT'S EASY TO MAKE YOUR ROOM RESERVATIONS:

1: PHONE: Call 1 800 772 8527 and tell them you are reserving a room for

the USS Horne 2003 Reunion.

2: ONLINE: CLICK HERE: http://towncountry.com/framereserv.html Scroll
down and find the link for Horne Reservations. Click on the Horne Link.
A password is required. The super secret password is: 30BOAT (ONE WORD).

Using this password will entitle you to the special HORNE REUNION per
night room rates: 1 or 2 people: $99 - 3 people: $119 - 4 people: $139

AGAIN:
It has been brought to my attention several people have made
reservations at the hotel for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday... but did NOT
reserve a room for Wednesday the 1st. After Reunion President Rufus
Reaves contacted these folks, seven have already changed their
reservations to include a Wednesday night stay. Unless you plan on
leaving the reunion early, please check your reservations carefully and
to verify you are staying with us Wednesday night. Changing your
reservations is as easy as calling 1 800 772 8527

That's all for this issue... please check your email address on the
decklog to make sure it is correct. Shipmates can NOT contact you if
it's wrong. Keep checking the www.USSHorne.net Website for updated
Reunion Information.

As always... if you have any questions about the Reunion... feel free to
contact Reunion President Rufus Reaves: horner-@webtv.net or me:
IC-@USSHorne.net

So long for now! And see you in September!
