Have you ever served aboard the USS Hugh Purvis - DD709? If so, we would like to have you become a member of the Hugh Purvis Reunion Association (aka HPRA). The HPRA provides a directory of your shipmates, plans the annual reunion to interesting places with great tours, the annual business meeting and the formal dinner. The reunions are for members and their spouse or significant other, or you can just come alone and still have a great time. You will make new friends or see some old ones. Membership is just $20 a year. Also, an age dependent lifetime membership is available (see the membership information link above). The value for our dues is one of the best for reunion associations.
