The 2019 LCI National Reunion!

On May 3-5 2019, the AFMM proudly hosted the LCI WWII Veterans Reunion. 13 veterans attended along with family and friends for a total of over 85. Everyone had a great time. Activities included: a reception, business meeting, memorial service, LCI-713 tours, DUKW rides, Famous Dave’s BBQ, Portland Spirit Champagne Cruise on the Willamette River and banquet dinner featuring the Parkrose High School Debonaires.

LCI-713 was decked out and looking great!

    Are there any vets left from the LCI(G) 67 gunboat? My Uncle William E Hinte was assigned to that boat. He died 11 Oct 2015. I don’t know if he attended the 2015 Rsunion in Charleston or not. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you, I am a vet of US Army and US Air Force.
