Walter. My BT hat pin came earlier this week. It's awesome. I had one that i ordered from Tin Can Sailors about 5 years ago. They no longer carry them and since then Iv'e been looking on the internet about once a month. Stand by to get underway. 30 in 36 out 1 back. That's the first bell you have to answer.

To All BT/S: One of my fromer ships the U.S.S. Yorktown CVS-10 is the lead ship at Patriots Piont in Mount Pleasant,South Carolina. Evey October i attens our annual reunion.I get to go down into # 2 fireroom and pretend i'm batting burners.The visitors stick to me like Velcro when they find out that i'm a former crewmember.My annual 15 minutes of fame. I'll be there this comimg October 11-13th.On the 13th which is a Saturday i'll be on the meet & greet panel from 1000-to 1400. Come by and i'll tell you some sea stories. I might even tell you some real facts about the ship too.The sad part it that you no longer hear all the sounds you would normally hear when the the ship was alive.

I attended BT "A"" school at GLAKES from Sept-73 to Nov-73.  I graduated 3rd in class.  Sure learned a lot in a very short time.  Sure did enjoy the Steam Lab during the hot Indian Summer.  Good training for WestPAC cruises.
