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!

Members, former shipmates and friends of the USS Saint Paul,

Welcome to the website of the USS Saint Paul Association….and to those fortunate ones who attended our outstanding reunion in Kalispell, Montana earlier this month…welcome home! We had a grand time and owe a collective thanks to the tireless efforts of Barry Fitzgerald who literally made it all possible in these trying time of Covid related travel and accommodation problems. We found the staff of the Hilton Garden Inn and Discover Kalispell to be very helpful and would recommend them to those considering a reunion or convention in the great state of Montana.

It is a pleasure to announce the reunion site for our 2023 gathering to be Savannah, Georgia. Watch these pages for updates and previews of activities planned. As was the case in Kalispell, the Association will use its leverage to achieve the best possible rate for attendees. Good idea to become a member now if you haven’t already done so!

News as well is that the Ship’s Store is undergoing a change in management and is temporarily closed. We hope to provide online access to a wide line of Saint Paul mementoes in the next month or two, hopefully in time for Christmas! Your patience is appreciated.

Plans are underway to activate this website in an effort to provide members with a greater opportunity to reconnect with shipmates through a members only directory and have a greater voice in Association affairs. Also, potential new members will be given the opportunity to apply on line and all members the opportunity to pay dues on line. These changes will be gradual and we ask interested parties for their patience and support.

In memory of the Saint and those who served,
Roger Brown
President
