Connie and Ernie

The 25th Reunion of the USS Picking was held in San Diego, California,  at the Sheraton Hotel and Marina. We had several new attendees which is a good sign of the vitality of our group. Ernie and Connie did a superb job! The hotel was excellent at a great price, the tours were great, and the company of shipmates, spouses, and friends was unsurpassed!
