The Uss Rankin Reunion


Published on

After almost 44 years of service, the U.S.S. RANKIN is celebrating its 20 anniversary as an artificial reef off the coast of Stuart, Florida.
Over 60 veterans who served aboard the U.S.S. RANKIN will be in Stuart the first week of November 2008 to pay tribute to the ship at its final resting place.
Some of the former crew members live here on the Treasure Coast.
