We had a very successful 2019 reunion in Tampa, Florida, but, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our 2020 reunion had to be canceled. Being ever optimistic and expecting the COVID-19 pandemic to have subsided by April 2021, we are planning to hold our 2021 reunion in Saratoga Springs, New York, the same location we had planned for the 2020 reunion.

The Embassy Suites Saratoga Springs will host our 2021 reunion. It is located at 86 Congress Street, in Saratoga Springs, New York. The front desk phone number, which is staffed 24/7, is (518) 290-9090.

The reunion will be a three-day event held on Monday May 3, Tuesday May 4 and Wednesday May 5, 2021. Our standard format will be used; registration on Monday, a tour on Tuesday and our memorial service, general meeting and banquet on Wednesday.

The discounted group room rate of $149 a night will be honored one day pre/post reunion and includes a hot breakfast buffet with a chef manned omelet station each morning and an evening reception from 5:30pm-7:30pm offering the hotel guests complimentary drinks & snacks.

Our day long bus/boat tour event on Tuesday, the second day of the reunion, begins at 8:30 AM. It will consist of a bus tour of the Saratoga Battlefield, followed by a river boat cruise of the Hudson river with lunch provided by Dutch Apple Cruises. followed by a bus tour of the capital city of Albany. The cost of this day's events, which will include lunch, will be $90 per person.

Our evening events on Wednesday, the third day of the reunion, will be preceeded by the hotel's complimentary cocktail hour from 6:00pm-7:00pm in the Skidmore room, followed by the banquet held in the Grand Ballroom from 7:00pm-11:00pm and will consist of a plated dinner, cash bar, dancing, a DJ, and karaoke.

During the reunion the USS Compton Association traditionally provides a hospitality room for all attendees to gather, chat and tell their sea stories. In this hospitality room the Association provides an assortment of snacks, soda, beer, wine and spirits for reunion attendees and displays Compton memorabilia. This room will be open most of the time during a reunion, except during the banquet and business meeting.

Area airports are Albany International Airport and Warren County Airport, but unfortunately, there is no shuttle service available from these airports.

A reservation cut-off date in mid April, 2021 is expected, so please make your reservations early, and mention the block code "USS" when making your reservation.

Additional information and the reunion registration form will be provided on this site in the November 2020 and February 2021 Newsletters, when they become available, and a link to the hotel website is given below.
