All Navy Net Tender / Net Layer Reunion 2010 Chattanooga, Tennessee was a big success

The Delta Queen was used at the beginning of WWII as temporary barracks at Tiburon, CA while barracks were being constructed for the Net Depot and Net and Booms School. It is now permanently moored on the Tennessee River in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The Delta Queen is part of Net Tender history and we are part of theirs!

To register to attend the 2011 reunion go to the Signup page. Just click on this text.

All of our reunions are inclusive of all those who have in any way been associated with Net Tenders, Net Layers, Net Gate Vessels, Net Cargo Vessels, Net Depots or any other units that had anything to do with nets in any way.

Some of us served aboard Net Tenders (Net Layers) long after nets were no longer in use and are still part of this community. We welcome everyone no matter how tenuous the connection. Next of kin of veterans from this community are also very much welcome to join us.

I want to thank Chris Petro and Adrienne Terry of the Convention Visitors Bureau (CVB) for the outstanding assistance in so many ways in the planning and execution of the reunion. They are the very best, professional through and through! It is not an exaggeration to say that some of the details simply would not have worked out the same without their advice and assistance. In the coveted cudo in the Navy Bravo Zulu!
