|Join the Parche Association|
Why should I Join?
Joining The Parche Association has many benefits. The first and foremost is the opportunity to continue the camaraderie assciated with both the great submarines that have borne the name USS PARCHE. Through our newsletter and reunions you will be kept informed of not only our activities, but other submarine news throughout the nation. Secondly, the Parche Association affords us an opportunity "to continue to serve." Being former Parche sailors and support personnel we have a responsibility to our country to help attract the finest of America’s youth to the Navy in general and the Submarine Service in particular. One way to accomplish this is to let our presence be felt as a group through our interaction in other organizations like the US SubVets, Inc. & USSVWWII making contributions to worthy institutes like the Vallejo Museum and Keyport Submarine Museum, maintaining a website, and donating our time to worthwhile projects. Lastly, we fund scholarship activities directly from your membership fees.
Who Can Join?
Any former crewmembers of the SS 384, SSN 683, their families, and any other personnel who supported SSN 683 in her Ocean Engineering mission are eligible to join the Parche Association.
