Hello USS Franklin crew, family & friends! We are pleased to announce the 2019 USS Franklin Reunion will be hosted in Nashville Tennessee! The reunion will be held Thursday July 11th through Sunday July 14th at the Embassy Suites Vanderbilt in Nashville.
We would like to extend an invitation to the veterans of the USS O’Callahan and USS Gary. These two ships continued the legacy of the USS Franklin by virtue of their namesakes. The USS O’Callahan was named after Chaplain Lieutenant Commander Joseph T. O’Callahan, and the USS Gary was named after Commander Donald A. Gary, both Medal of Honor recipients for their rescue of crewmen on the USS Franklin.
There are a limited number of rooms reserved at the USS Franklin rate of $199 per night plus tax. To book your room for the reunion please contact the hotel directly as soon as possible.
