|USS LITTLE ROCK ASSOCIATION'S LADIES
While some may consider it unlucky to have a woman aboard ship, the USS Little Rock Association
feels just the opposite when it comes to having women as part of our group. In fact, the ladies of the
Association have their own group within the organization. Click below to get the latest from the
Auxiliary and check back often for updates on how this spirited group interacts with the Association.
