Yes, Ann. They were the greatest genration!
They gave & sacrificed so much, as did their families at home. Life was so much more unsure then. I would have been constantly terrified had I not been just a child at the time......................

Thank you for sharing this, Jill.
That is so true, twoclubs! One of the greatest honors of my life was to attend an LSM Reunion with hin and tour an actual docked LSM. It was being with those gentlemen at the reunion that gave me a glimpse of what true patriotism is. Daddy would have been so pleased to see this photo in puzzle form for the world to see!
Nice to have this photo of him and his mates. They are all so handsome and yes, that meridian crossing can be rough on them!! I have heard those stories! Wow what they put up with!
