I want to report that Sam Reynolds has been having a tough time of it. Sam, now blind, broke his leg going to the head one night and has been the hospital and rehab for the past month. Hes been get infections, has had intestinal issues and is now low on energy & strength. Its been this way for well over a month now and it doesn't look like hell get out of rehab much before Christmas; if then! I been calling him 2 -3 times a week to keep his spirits up.

Sam was XO of the PT-162 (RON-9) and later it's Skipper. The 162 was the closest PT to the PT-109 the night the 109 went down...although he would say other events were event more memorable!

He could use some holiday cheer and cards if you are so inclined to do so

Sam is at:

Eastern Shores Rehab Center
101 Villa Drive
Daphne, AL, 36526

Two Ron 9 PT Boat skippers. Ham and Sam at the reunion. I wish the best to both of them as they are in their 90's.

When Sam (PT-162) saw my father (PT-154) entering from across the room he yelled out his name ...
... "Ham Smith I thought you were dead ... I would have paid a million bucks to see you alive again."

Thanks Bridge and Steve. I am going off to visit my Dad next week for his 93rd birthday ... a big family gathering.
These guys were in their early 20's when they shared their Ron 9 experiences together. Age 24 is a long time ago for me ... imagine what it is for these skippers.
