Welcome to the Class of 1958 Home Page.  This website is intended to provide current class information as well as historical items of interest.  
The most important aspect of the website is to foster communication among Classmates.  The site will be updated periodically to reflect  your feedback.   
 Contact Fred Victor (avictor@erols.com)  with any suggestions for changes or improvements to this website.  

Bill Schramm is the Class Corresponding Secretary.  He writes the monthly Class column in Shipmate.  See the News/Events page for Shipmate
 deadlines and the Shipmate page for additional '58 news.  Bill can be reached via email  at w_schramm@comcast.net
or telephone  831-484-9058

The Class Roster  and Email are  now being updated as we receive new information.   In addition, the entire Roster and the Email listings will  
be updated about every four months in the event we miss some new information along the way.   
Send any changes directly to Gordo:  usna1958@verizon.net
