From: Capt Larry Olsen, Sr., USN To: Subject: USS VIRGINIA (CGN-38) Reunion Date: Mon, 12 Sep 2011 09:53:33 -0600
I was the Fire Control Officer (FC DivO) from Jan ’85-Aug ’86. I realize that this is a shot in the dark and that many of these e-mail addresses are old and may no longer work, but I want to get the word out to those who would be interested in a reunion.
For those of you with whom I’ve already corresponded in earlier e-mails, please forgive the “spamming.”
We are looking to gather in Annapolis, MD on the first weekend in November.
The main event will be the USNA vs. Troy State Football game on 5 Nov, starting at 1530.
If I can get enough people signed up to make it worthwhile, we can get a section for USS VIRGINIA and ticket prices drop from $35 to $25 per ticket.
We are still looking at the possibility of a linkup at a local restaurant or pub after the game, but again, I need to estimate of how many people we might expect.
If you are interested, please e-mail me and let me know and I will add you to the roster and send you updates.
The website for ordering tickets to the Troy State game can be found at URL:
However, I recommend that you wait on buying your game tickets until we find out if we will have a section dedicated to USS VIRGINIA.
VIRGINIA was the finest ship in the fleet and I look forward to hearing from you.
Also, if you have contact info on other shipmates, please feel free to forward it to me.

UPDATE: navy won! Navy downs visiting Troy, 42-14
(AP) – 28 minutes ago
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Kriss Proctor ran for two touchdowns and passes for another in his return from injury, leading Navy to a 42-14 rout of Troy on Saturday.
On senior day for the Midshipmen (3-6), Navy played its best game of the season, led 35-0 at halftime and snapped a six-game losing streak.
Proctor, who sat out last week with an elbow injury, scored on rushes of 2 and 5 yards and threw a 48-yard touchdown pass to Gee Gee Greene before being replaced at halftime by backup Trey Miller. He also completed 4 of 6 passes for 127 yards.
Seniors Aaron Santiago, returning after missing six games with a broken left forearm, and Alexander Teich, led the Mids on the ground. Santiago had 80 yards and Teich added 71 yards overall and a 5-yard scoring run as Navy gained 390 of its 517 yards offense on the ground.
Greene also scored on a 10-yard run and Mike Stukel added Navy's lone second-half score on a 1-yard run.
Navy had 385 yards offense in the first half in building its biggest halftime margin since leading Temple 35-0 on Nov. 18, 2006.
Navy broke its longest skid since 2002 when it lost 10 in a row, and kept alive the Mids' hopes of playing in a bowl game for a ninth straight season. The Mids must now win their final three games to qualify for the Military Bowl.
Troy (2-6) lost its fourth straight game for the first time since 2006 and is now assured of finishing with its first non-winning season since 2005 (4-7).
The Trojans had 330 total offense, getting just 109 and six first downs in the first half. They scored on a 1-yard run by D.J. Taylor on their first possession of the second half and on a 22-yard pass from Corey Robinson to Chandler Worthy on their final possession.
Troy starter Corey Robinson completed 19 of 26 passes for 152 yards and backup Jamie Hampton was 8 for 11 for 60 yards. Shawn Southward led Troy with 68 rushing yards and Eric Thomas had seven catches for 60 yards.
Navy's Jared Marks and Collin Sturdivant recovered Troy fumbles for the Mids, setting up the first two scores of the game — a 2-yard run by Proctor and the pass from Proctor to Greene.
