Jon Yim, thanks for the information on the yearbooks you provided. I was lucky enough to connect with an old boot camp ship mate that had a spare Anchor Book for our company. He had ordered one while in boot camp and they sent him two of them, and thank God for that and Thank God for an old friend who has turned into a new friend again. Terry Kline has given me an Anchor Book. But Jon, I thank you for providing the information and looking at your page. It looks like you have become somewhat of an historian for the Navy San Diego! Again, Thank You.
