      Attention! New registrants!   04/05/17

      It would appear that many of our new registrants DO NOT understand the process, for several of you are attempting to register, once, twice or even three times within the same day. For clarification, I urge you to read the rules of the forum, first. You MUST reply to the email that I send back to you after receiving your registration. Approximately 50 % of new registrants, this week, are not completing the process, and therefore, I cannot approve your membership.

Remembering Bryl G. Bowman

2 posts in this topic

Thinking today of the service and sacrifice of Seaman 2nd Class Bryl G. Bowman, who went missing in action on this date 75 years ago. Seaman Bowman was a crew member aboard the USS Houston, which on 1 March 1942 was caught in a desperate battle with the Japanese fleet and was sunk off of the Java coast. Of the 1061 men aboard the Houston, 693 perished.

To all, rest in peace. Being on the water like this in a battle, is simply terrifying to me. I shudder to think about it.
