October 3, 2002-October 6, 2002 USS ORLECK ASSOCIATION holds its 6th and largest reunion in Orange, Texas with approximately 350 in attendance.  It is sad that over 60 were forced to cancel due to the threat of hurricane Lili.  The men of the USS ORLECK would not be denied.  The next reunion is in Honolulu from June 25, 2003 to June 29, 2003.  Contact Bob Orleck at P.O. Box 213, Randolph, VT 05060 or call 802-728-9806.  E-mail at orleckb@innevi.com

USS ORLECK DD 886 in Orange, Texas is site of the first USS ORLECK ASSOCIATION reunion since her return to the United States.  The first time a reunion has ever been held aboard a ship that has served the United States of America, been sold to another country (Turkey) and then returned to the place where she was built (Orange, Texas) to be a museum ship.  Theme of the reunion is from Ecclesiastes 3:1, “To every thing there is a season…”
