header_squads

Welcome to those squadron members and Staff’s that served on the USS Nimitz CVN-68. The USS Nimitz does not truly become a warship until the squadrons are onboard. As a member of a squadron that served onboard the Nimitz you are eligible to join the USS Nimitz Association and to attend the Association Reunions. Also consider having your squadron reunions in conjunction with the Nimitz Association reunions.

  • Is your squadron missing from the list?
  • If so, please send an email to the Association Secretary / Treasurer (edeats@frontiernet.net), and we will research and get your squadron listed.
