From the President:

"The USS Turner Joy will take part in a world wide event for three days in June. On 3,4 and 5 June the TJ and over 80 museum ships will be on the ham bands. Ships who have not spoken to each other for decades will once again make contact. Plan to arrive on the morning of 3 June and select one of several operating positions. Bring those items necessary to spend Friday and Saturday night aboard the ship. We'll operate as long as there is a band open. Let yours be the voice that makes contact with such ships as the USS Missouri, USS New Jersey and the USS Midway."
