Webmastered by Roger Rieman, Official Cony Association Roster Keeper
I served on the USS Cony DD-508 from 1962 until 1965 in the OI Division.
I originated this website in 1997 and have reacquainted with many of my
shipmates and have many new
shipmate friends because of it and
hopefully you will too.
Reunion 2014 Memory Book errors:
To all shipmates;
If you are in receipt of the 2014 Reunion Memory Book I am sure you will by now have noticed that there were several errors involved.
These errors were missed when the original drafts were reviewed and therefore were included when we went to press. It is with deep regret that this has happened and assure you that this will not happen again. We certainly hope that despite these errors you enjoyed looking at this book in the context for which it was fully intended. Hope to see you all in Myrtle Beach.
Note from Roger Rieman
I think Phil did a great job in putting together such a great memory book in spite of some errors which I accept as much blame as Phil, due to some communication problems between us. We are grateful to Phil for accepting the challenge and I am confident that now that he has some experience with it, that next years memory book will be even better.
Our 2015 reunion will be at Myrtle Beach, S.C. to be hosted by Charlie Heilman and assisted by Curtis Kallam.
The date of reunion will be April 29th to May 3rd
Phil Michel is now the storekeeper for the USS Cony Ship Store

If you served on the USS Cony DD/ DDE 508 at anytime during her active service, you are eligible to be added to the Cony Association's roster and you will receive the Cony newsletter that is either emailed to you or US Postal mail if you wish, 3 or 4 times a year.
You will also receive a copy of the Cony Association roster which includes the contact information for each of the over 450 shipmates on it. You are almost certain to find some of the shipmates that were on the Cony when you were. If you would like to be added to the USS Cony Association roster please send an email to me (see email address above)
with your years onboard the Cony, your last rate/rank while aboard, your home address and phone number.
Your name, rate/rank and years onboard will be added to the "limitied" version of the roster posted on this website, but your other information will only be given to other Cony Association members.
