in Key West for the 2021 Reunion
of the 327’ Secretary Class Cutters
"THE SHIPS THAT WOULDN'T DIE"
The Coast Guard's Magnificent Seven
The 2021 INGHAM Reunion
is scheduled for September 28, 29, & 30, 2021
in Key West, Florida, celebrating USCGC INGHAM's 85th Birthday.
We look forward to seeing you all!
The USCGC INGHAM that served our nation for 52 years and has continued to serve as a museum honoring all Coast Guard Veterans, especially those lost in World War II and Vietnam, will be celebrating her 85th Birthday/Anniversary and we must not miss honoring our most historic ship. We also want to honor all the other sister 327’ Secretary/Treasury Ships and the Crews who take pride in their ship’s histories which also began 85 years ago.
We hope the USCGC BIBB, CAMPBELL, DUANE, HAMILTON, SPENCER, and TANEY members and supporters will join us so we can Remember, Honor, and Preserve the histories of the Coast Guard’s Magnificent Seven. It will also be the USCGC INGHAM Association’s 18th Biennial Reunion.
