The Association is dedicated to preserving the honor and memory of the crew of the USS Gambier Bay and her air group, VC-10. The Association works to honor and keep alive the memory of the crew members who helped fight an epic battle against hopeless odds. They never gave up, many of them gave their lives in the process, and they all helped write one of the US Navy’s most amazing stories of heroism.
The Association is comprised of survivors, wives, family members, and friends. With yearly reunions, we help to keep the memory alive and honor those who died on that gray morning of October 25, 1944. The Association has held reunions all over the United States (California, Nebraska, Virginia, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Wisconsin, Missouri, Florida, Maryland, Minnesota, Washington, DC, and Texas) and in 1977, survivors and their families returned to the Philippines for a most memorable reunion.
As the years go by and more of the men who served on the Gambier Bay and in VC-10 pass away, the organization is being joined by an increasing number of their children, grandchildren, and others who wish to continue to honor their memory.
