The USS Robert L. Wilson Association is a Navy veterans' organization whose mission it is to preserve the history of that ship and all who served in her. We encourage and support interest in the US Navy, and support all who serve in the sea services. It is dedicated to the officers and men who served aboard the "Willy Boat" from 1946 to 1974.  A time period known as the Cold War.  Accordingly, she is called a Cold War Warrior.


This website is our means of communication to all who seek us.  It replaced our former website, which was maintained by Shipmate Gerold Ricks, on WebTV in early 2014.


Though our ship is long gone, we, the ship's crew, still meet annually for muster to share and enjoy our camaraderie.
