This is the site for the USS Orion AS-18 organized by USS Orion Veterans Historical Organization (OVHO). Every year we have a reunion and the site rotates from the East to the Midwest and then to the West!. However the reunion site does depend on someone hosting it. We are a tax exempt fraternal organization per the IRS
