2013 Reunion San Antonio


The USS Rankin Association's Tenth Annual Reunion was held in San Antonio, Texas from October 10-13, 2013, at the Wyndham San Antonio Riverwalk Hotel. The reunion was held jointly with the USS Muliphen Reunion Association. There were 96 attendees from the Rankin and 18 from the Muliphen, for a total of 114. A good time was had by all.  
OUR SCHEDULE IN SAN ANTONIO
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 10    
Welcome to the Wyndham San Antonio Riverwalk hotel. We had made our reservations at the Crowne Plaza Riverwalk Hotel, but when its name was changed to Wyndham, nobody bothered to tell us. Most cab drivers were aware of the change, but those who drove to San Antonio weren't. It all made for a confusing start.
