Thank you for visiting our new Internet site.
Our web site is and will remain in a constant state of construction. We are making an effort to present you with
the entire spectrum of our ASSOCIATION.
The USS CONYNGHAM ASSOCIATION is a nonprofit, volunteer membership, social organization. The purpose of the
Association is to maintain and promote a strong cohesive organization comprised of shipmates who have served
on board USS CONYNGHAM DD 371 and shipmates who have served on board USS CONYNGHAM DDG 17. The goal is
to foster the spirit of goodwill among its members and afford opportunities of communication, enjoyment, companionship,
recreation and involvement, to perpetuate the comradeship developed among men who have served in the United States
Navy and to preserve the two ships' prominent places in history.
The Association was established in 1987 by shipmates who had served on DD 371. In 1996, the DD 371 invited
shipmates that had served on DDG 17 to join with them. All personnel, officer and enlisted, who have served
on board USS CONYNGHAM DD 371 or USS CONYNGHAM DDG 17 are eligible for membership as Regular Members. Wives,
widows and family members of men eligible for regular membership are welcome and eligible for membership as Associate
An Association newletter, the PRIVATEER, is published each quarter to disseminate information. An annual
business meeting is held in conjunction with the annual reunion. The purpose of this meeting is to act
on such matters as may be present and to elect officers for the following year.
