You're more than welcome OUfan and thank you for your long-term service in the Navy!

 

My wife, son and I made our annual Veterans Day visit to my father-in-law's burial site yesterday. It was real nice to see the cemetery finally installed the veterans bronze plaque at the foot of his grave honoring his service in the Marine Corps during the later part of WWII. While we had to pay for the footer being poured, and granite base, it's nice the Veterans Adminstration supplied the plaque/marker for free upon submission of his honorable discharge papers. :smileyhappy:

Yep, I spent 20 years in and 12 of it underwater.  I was onboard the USS Hawkbill when this video was shot by CNN in 1999.

 

 

They were doing an hour long special about us. The online article is here.
