My goal date was Veterans’ Day and I finished early

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

The project that kept me away from SP so much during the last month is done.

One of the old sailors at the reunion in Sept told me how much he enjoyed looking at the site. Sadly, he died a few days later and never saw the redesign with all the new material.

My parents were married 70 years ago today while my Dad had a 3 day pass from the Navy. So today is also a significant date for my newly reorganized “Tribute to the Crew of the USS Philadelphia” to “go live.”

  Great work! You have made a lot of people happy with your efforts. My Dad was in the Navy for 35 years and every year at the reunion of a ship explosion wherein he saved 12 people, one of my siblings go to the festivities to catch up with those remaining sailors.

P.S. - my parents married 68 years ago today. They met in elementary school. Both were very shy. Took the War to give Dad the courage to contact Mom again.

    This is wonderful. I'll check it out when I get home later, I had bookmarked the site the last time you talked about it.

What a wonderful thing you have done for the greatest generation.

    That is super, you finished by your parents' anniversary instead of Veteran's Day. Glad you got it done, now I'm going to check it out again. I very much enjoyed it the last time you gave us the co-ordinates.
Thank you for serving the memory of those who served, that was a great job you did.
