FOUNDED IN 1986 by JC Carlson,
the USS Wainwright Veterans Association is a 501(c) 3 non-profit association of men who served aboard any of the three USS Wainwright ships. This web site is dedicated to those sailors.

Our association exists to keep alive the memory of all vessels named Wainwright.

We need everyone’s assistance, via membership and dues payments, to achieve that goal by supporting our museum trailer as well as participation in regional veterans’ recognition events and attending the bi-annual reunions.

OCTOBER 14-18, 2020
USS Wainwright Veterans Association Reunion
Westin Washington Dulles, Herndon, VA


U.S. Capital

The board is very excited about returning to Washington DC for a Wainwright reunion after
more than 20 years. Museums, memorials, The White House, The Capitol, Arlington National Cemetery, etc., make Washington a wonderful choice to celebrate our military heritage, our history and to enjoy being around shipmates.

The reunion hotel is well suited to support us with comfortable and well-appointed guest rooms, large meeting facilities for our various functions and a desire to please that rivals any previous location.

As we get closer to the end of 2019, we will have planning completed so the registration process can begin.

Make your plans now to join us and let’s make this the most well attended yet.
