If you need to renew your membership, you can do it now by going to your profile. 


I will be adding some improvements (I hope!) in the next few weeks to better track members and automatically send out a notice when your dues are coming up for renewal.

Attention all members. I would like to get everyone's commands and the dates (years) you were there. Example: USS Frank Cable AS-40, 1979-1985. If you can submit a spreadsheet, that would be great but a word document would also do. Just email them to me at

Please Note:

If you would like to join the OM-IM Association, go to the Registration page and sign up. An email will be sent for you to verify. Once verified you can log in and you will be asked to pay a membership fee. Registration will give you limited access. Once dues are paid, you will have full access to the members area.

Ships Store

We added a Ships Store menu item accessible to all. Right now we have caps on sale and hope to add more OM/IM items in the future.



We added a Links page with links to other websites that may be of interest to our members.
