The next reunion will be in San Diego, California May 9th through May 13, 2018.

Do you believe you were affected by Agent Orange while aboard the Magoffin?
Thanks to the efforts of Richard Wood, BM2 the Magoffin is now on the Roster of "Agent Orange Alphabetized Ships List" on the US Department of Veterans Affairs website. http://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/agentorange/shiplist/list.asp#M
This listing should make a claim much easier to process through the VA. Thanks to Richard for his hard work to get this accomplished.
