Permanent Home Port of the “Mighty B” DD-845

With the dedication and support of your fellow Association crew members, we welcome you aboard the official U.S.S. Bausell web site. I'm sure like all of us, you had some good times on the Bausell, visited some great ports and have fond recollections of the friends you made while on the Mighty "B". Since 1995, we have been bringing those friends back together again, in cities around the USA, with a reunion every (2) years. So, we encourage you to drop anchor and muster with us for our next reunion of laughter, memories and swapping sea stories with friends, old and new.




Association Mission:

To preserve the memory and history of Corporal Lewis K. Bausell and our fine ship. To make reasonable efforts to locate all ship's personnel that have yet to be contacted and inform them of our organization. To be a focal point so ex-crew members may keep in touch with one another by  newsletters, phone calls or at biannual reunions.



Our organization is open to any and all who served at any time in any capacity with U.S.S. Bausell. Family members are also welcome to join. To join the Association there is a one-time initial membership fee of $10, and dues of $10 for each succeeding calendar year.


A new member packet along with memorabilia will be sent once your application is processed. Plus, you will receive an Association directory with hundreds of the Bausell crew that we have located. As our organization continues to grow, I can promise you that this web site, like our reunions, will only get better. Until we salute each other at our next reunion, take care and smooth sailing.
