Yosemite Association Membership

Membership requires either one-time Life Time Member Fee based on age or an annual subscription of $15. You can apply for membership in 2 ways:

  • Online: You can complete the online form below and mail us a check for the amount of the Life Time Member Fee or the annual subscription of $15.
  • Old Fashion Way: You can apply for membership by downloading the PDF membership application form and print it. Complete the form and mail it to us with a check for the amount of the Life Time Member Fee or the annual subscription of $15

Member Note:
Anyone that has served on the USS Yosemite is eligible for “Regular Membership.”  The dues are either $15.00 a year or a  “Lifetime Membership” that gets better as you get older. We feel the “Lifetime Membership” is a better deal! The page provides details. Anyone that supports the objectives of the Association can be granted Associate Membership with the sponsorship of a regular member.  If you wish to be a part of our group – make it known to us.  We will find someone to sponsor you.  Many of us have been on other Tenders, some in the “Dixie” Class (Sister Ships).  We are happy to have a large Yosemite Family!  We look forward to seeing new faces. We have an excellent Scholarship Program too for families that have had people on the Yosemite.

Apply Online: Click on  USS Yosemite Online Membership Application Form and after you submit it write a check for the membership dues and send it to the address below. Please note: the online membership application form method will be improved to pay online by credit card or PayPal. Since this is under development, right now we need you to send the check for the membership dues by postal mail to Alan Koepke. Thank you for your patience and support.
