The USS Hassayampa (AO-145) Veterans Association is an association by, of and for all former crew members of the USS Hassayampa (AO-145)... the best oiler in the Navy.
The objectives of the Association are fraternal, patriotic, and historical; to provide information about reunions, maintain a database of former shipmates, display photographs of the "Hass" and her crew, tell "sea stories", to perpetuate the memory and history of our deceased comrades and keep alive the memories that we, as shipmates, all share.
Membership in the Association is open to everyone that served in USS Hassayampa (AO-145) as well as USNS Hassayampa (T-AO-145).
NO ADVERTISEMENTS SHALL BE POSTED ON THIS WEBSITE, EXCEPT HASSAYMPA ASSOCIATION REUNIONS ONLY!
