The brotherhood of the U.S. Navy's
Opticalman and Instrumentman ratings


We had a great time in Dallas! We went to the AT&T stadium and got to meet several of the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, run (walk for most of us) around the field, and have a great hot dog. We spent a lot of time in Fort Worth seeing the stockyards and shopping. At the hotel, we sat and told lies sea stories.

We voted on keeping the dues at the current level of $20 per year. It was decided that our next reunion would be in San Diego and the one after that in Vermont. We will be putting out information soon on the next reunion dates, etc. 

As soon as I get some of the photos, I will be putting them in our photos section. 

Start planning now to come to San Diego next fall. We always have a great time. 

To my surprise, I was reelected as president of the association and Pete reelected as vice-president. I take this responsibility very serious and hope I meet everyone's expectations.

John Bryan, IMC, USN (Ret.)
President, OM-IM Association
