We are saddend to report the passing of John Delmar Anderson, of Roswell, NM, last night at age 98.
Mr. Anderson enlisted in the Navy March 16, 1937 from Minneapolis, MN. and reported onboard the USS Arizona December 6, 1940, just one year before the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Update from Ruth Campbell and Dean Harris: Here we go again! We told you that last year our Hawaii reunion was the "Last Hurrah," but the survivors overruled the Association and stated that the USS Arizona Reunion Association will continue thru 2016.
The 2015 reunion will be held in Tucson at the Viscount Hotel and the final reunion will be held in Hawaii in 2016 - the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Rebuilding a 16 year old website from the ground up is a daunting task. A few months ago, our entire website was lost due to financial issues. Thanks to the donations made by our viewers we are back and luckily all photos and stories were backed up on several portable hard-drives. It will take months to restore everything but it will be accomplished.
The silver lining in the cloud is this website will be better than ever! Regular progress updates will be posted here. Currently I am working on restoring the Casualty & Survivor profile pages (linked from the Casualty & Survivor lists) as well as uploading photo galleries and restoring the Survivor Stories. Casualty & Survivor lists are 100% restored. The individual profiles are at 10%. I am at 75% restoration for Survivor Stories and 30% restoration for the galleries.
The Nease Family thanks you for your patience and continued support during this website restoration. ~N. Nease
