This is the Home Page for the Frankford Arsenal Alumni. I left the Arsenal in 1972 when I was caught in a RIF action fresh out of the Trade School. Three years later the Arsenal closed for good. A victim of the Army's budget cuts. Many say the Arsenal was doomed because it wasn't a plush place for Officer's duty station. Whatever the reason its doors were closed and we were all forced to go our separate ways.

The Registry is getting a lot of hits. For now I ask that anyone who uses the form and wants to change an entry just email me the changes. I am working on a way to make your own changes.

I am putting together a registry. If you want to be part of it click the Registry link to the left and fill out the form. The names, emails and descriptions will be posted here.

The semi-annual FA Alumni luncheon will be held at the Chateau at Bridge & Aramingo on Thursday April 27 starting at about 11:30 or so. If you haven't yet attended any of the past luncheons, it's fun to try and figure out who's who. Although, some faces have changed very little and you'll recognize them right away. There are usually a few new faces every luncheon also. If interested, please give Bob Murray a call at 215-637-1925 or Jack Dignam at (215) 737-7499. Bob needs a rough head count to insure enough food for the buffet. Food is always good and there is an open bar. Take an hour or two to stop in and see some faces from the past. Please pass this along to anyone not on the addressee list above that might be interested in attending. Why not just go. I'm sure you'll know some of the people.
