Tom,

A while back, someone wanted to know about O.B. Adams.  I found this today on the web:

CAPT. ADAMS, REST YOUR OAR
Your chaplain has extended the condolences of the Submarine Veterans of North Carolina to the family of Retired Navy CAPT. Ollie Buford Adams, 86, of Southern Pines, NC. CAPT. Adams saw service during World War II aboard the submarines O-2, DRUM (SS-228), and TUSK (SS-426). He sailed on his eternal patrol on 21 April 2007, and was interred in Arlington National Cemetery (Section 48, Site 591).  He is survived by his daughter Sandra Bustle and a granddaughter. He had been a member of the Tarheel Chapter of U.S. Submarine Veterans of World War II since 1996.

A USSVI/USSVWWII newsletter archived:

I wrote to Clay Hester and let him know.

I was able to track down the daughter that is mentioned in the obit and talked to her on the phone this evening, she was thrilled to hear about the flag and hadn't known about it. I can't thank you enough, it means alot to me to find another crew family.  knuppel2

That's awesome Tom!

I've been trying to contact you for days via email but the emails are always returned to me.  Did you know you had problems with your email?

Got your email tonight, but still cannot respond to you.  I've tried to email you from 3 different email accounts and all of them bounced back to me.
