Welcome To The
Old Antarctic Explorers Association
Welcome to the old Antarctic Explorers Association Web Site. The association was founded to keep alive the memory and share the experience of those personnel, both military and civilian of all nations, who served or are serving in support of Antarctic Research. Membership in the association is open to all that have shared the Antarctic Experience. An Associate Membership is available for anyone having an interest in Antarctica.
The Antarctic Experience, for membership purposes, is defined in our By-Laws as now serving or having had (1) verifiable service on the Continent of Antarctica, and/or off-shore islands, in support of an organized expedition for discovery or scientific exploration, or; (2) verifiable service on any of the U.S. Navy or New Zealand Navy Ocean Station Vessels; Navy and Coast Guard Icebreakers; supply ships, tankers, and research vessels that participated in Operations Highjump, Windmill and/or Deep Freeze, or: (3) men or women who have worked in or visited the Antarctic Continent and/or offshore islands or aboard ships in Antarctic waters for any legitimate reason, and: (4) widows, widowers, children, or other next of kin of deceased members or any deceased individual, who would, if living be eligible for membership.
