Each reunion we honor the shipmates we have lost since the previous reunion. The program honoring them is called the Homeward Bound Project. To view those who were so honored in the Memorial Service this reunion in the Memorial service aboard the Delta Queen click on this text.
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!
This site has been changed to show what we did at the 2010 reunion
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.
