Beautiful Job. You and the gang have made a really nice memorial for Mickey. Give Faye and the family our best when you see them.

Hello everybody-

As one of the players on this PT-374 Memorial Project I am delighted and sad at the same time. The end results are just jaw dropping and I think we did exactly what Frankie A. wanted and just maybe a little bit more.

I am very happy to see this project come to an end but I'm saddened that due to my finances, the Christmas Holidays and my family visiting from out of state, I will not be able to make it to Feeding Hills, Mass. for the unveiling of this beautiful one of a kind diorama. I will say this that I'll be there in spirit!

A very special "thank you" to Alex Johnson and Stan Pienkowski as well as Frank Andruss for taking me on as part of this team. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

Thanks again guys! A Merry Christmas to all!

Mr. McNeish once told me that the 374 had a .30 caliber "stinger" on one of the torpedo racks, ... did you guys include it? I can't tell from these photos.

I'm just asking.

yes it is there, but does not show up in the present photo's. Alex did a great job in duplicating this twin .30 caliber stinger weapon.

Frank: Reminds me some of the dock at Lambu Cove - about the same size - just room for one boat but the grass huts and the area around is much neater than at Lambu. We had clutter, gasoline barrels,cans ammunition boxes etc scattered around everywhere. Yours sure is a beautiful job. All you guys that worked on it deserve a lot of praise. Every one have a Merry Christmas.
