The Memorial Day  went great, we had about 20 attend, half sub vets and three news cameras, Al our bsae commander read the boats and I was bell ringer. We had subvets from Mobile Bay Base, Tullibee Base and Drum Base and one or two I had not seen before. We are planning on doing this annually now and expanding on it abit.

The reuion was great even though we only had 7 crew make it but some of their kids made it and it was fun giving them a tour. They crew and families presented Lesley and I each a plaque in appreciation for our work, very nice and chocked us up. It is really special to have them on board and for they visitors to get to hear their stories and answer the questions.

We learned that the first crew member to have contact with a member of the opposite sex in the states when they returned was Stateside, a dog they had on board when they left Hunters point for the 14th patrol. When they were coming along side the pier in New York, Stateside saw a dog on the pier and jumped ashore before they could get a line over and educated the poor female dog about submarine crew members coming back from sea.

Go to drum progress for recent photos.
