The USS Simon Lake Association is by and for any past crew members and their families.  The main mission of the association is to keep the memory alive of the ship, her crews and her missions.  We welcome submissions. 

The ship is currently stored with the ghost fleet on the James River in Virginia awaiting disposition.

We are building pages dedicated to pictures and videos to bring back memories.  Please use the Contact Us page to get in touch if you have something to contribute. Visit the history page and the reunion pages often, we are adding content often.
