Welcome to the USS Davidson Reunion Website - Dedicated to the memory of the ship and the officers and men who sailed her.

The USS Davidson Reunion Association is proud to announce the plaque honoring the USS Davidson is officially hanging at the US Navy Memorial thanks to the help and generous donations of our fellow crewmates and family.

The dedication ceremony took place 11AM, Friday, April 17, 2009 followed by the movie AT SEA at 12 noon. A group of our own, attended the event, and helped provide photos and a short video of the special event.
