The USS SAINT PAUL ASSOCIATION is comprised of former sailors and marines who served aboard the ship during her meritorious service to our country. Our objective is to perpetuate, honor, and preserve the memory of the USS SAINT PAUL (CA-73). The Association holds biennial reunions to enable members to maintain contact with their friends and other shipmates, and to continue the memories and accomplishments of deceased shipmates. Members receive quarterly first-class newsletters (The Roving Saint) filled with many interesting articles and photos, updates on reunions, and current information. Applications are available on this web site. Join the fun in reminiscing about persons, places and events of the ship’s valiant history. Become a member now!

The USS Saint Paul reunion will take place as scheduled, Sept. 8-11, 2021, in Kalispell, Montana. Anticipation (and registrations) has been tremendous – much above what we had expected, due to virus concerns from last year. Many of our members had reached out to us to hold the reunion this year and we are happy to report that our efforts were successful. We are leaving the copy of the registration form in place as of now. We had listed an August 8th cut-off date for reservations, so we will continue to work with that date. However, be advised that the tours (boat, city, and national park) are sold out. We are working on some alternatives but there are no guarantees. You will need to check with me for details. The reunion fee ($120 per person) will allow you to attend the two banquets, socialize in the hospitality suite with free drinks and snacks, attend the business meeting and memorial service. This is a bargain in itself. We have easily met our minimum quorum numbers for our official acts of business. Our reunion hotel is the Hilton Garden Inn, and all functions will be held there. The hotel has bent over backwards to assist us with rooms and the reunion, but our block of rooms is now sold, and we are thus working on overflow hotels (and a shuttle) that will honor the same great rate ($89) that the Hilton has given us. Do talk to the Hilton first, but then contact me about alternate sites. As mentioned above, you will still attend all the events at the Hilton. Meet us in Montana!
Membership directories are no longer available. However, we will attempt to help with individual requests for member information. We are not equipped to do division rosters at this time. Ship’s Store items must be ordered through our Treasurer, Dennis McFadden at 601-602-4468.
