About Us

The USS Rankin Association is a nonprofit Pennsylvania corporation chartered in 2006, dedicated to fostering comradeship among everyone connected with the USS Rankin, from the laying down of her keel on October 31, 1944, through the present day, and into the distant future.
 
Our Association was inspired by the activities of George Berninger, John Feeley, Jack Raso, Bob Reynolds, and Skip Sander, all of whom were junior officers aboard the Rankin in the early 1960s. They became our initial Commissioning Board. With the adoption of our Bylaws in 2006, the Commissioning Board was replaced by an eight-member Executive Board composed of the five founders plus Jill Breslau, Jim McCourt, and Jan Smits. Skip Sander became Executive Director, and remained in that position through the early 2020's.
 
In accordance with an IRS determination letter dated March 17, 2006, we are a veterans organization exempt from paying Federal income taxes under section 501(c)(19) of the Internal Revenue Code.
