Welcome to Membership in the USS Gambier Bay/VC-10 Association


Thank you for choosing to join this organization that is dedicated to preserving the honor and memory of the Gambier Bay and her air group, VC-10. The Association works to 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 country, including Texas, Washington, DC, California, Louisiana, Colorado, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nevada, and many many more states.

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.

Survivors do not pay membership dues.
