This page is dedicated as a special tribute to Jim Wescoat. Jim and his wife Maxine were the founders and hosts for the first KAS reunion held in St. Louis, MO, in 1990. They attended the yearly reunions until Maxine's health made travel too difficult. Maxine passed away on May 7, 2017 and Jim passed on February 3, 2019. The members of the organization will forever be in their debt for creation of this Association. Thanks to them the sailors of the USS Kaskaskia and their spouses have been able to renew the friendships they enjoyed as young men and developed new friendships based on common experiences.
