Veterans who served aboard the U. S. Navy oiler USS Kennebec, AO 36, gathered in Alameda with their spouses for their 17th annual reunion. This year’s confab coincided with Fleet Week on San Francisco Bay.
During their stay, the veterans and their wives enjoyed a cruise aboard the USS Jeremiah O’Brien. They also visited the Alameda Museum, where they met with Mayor Trish Spencer. The mayor honored them with a proclamation declaring Friday, Oct. 6 “USS Kennebec Day.”
