Had a great visit today from Jack Kirksey and Stan Pienkowski. As you know Stan has been my friend for at least 27 years now and has built probably 98% of all my models for the Exhibit.

Jack was here from Georgia to visit Battleship Cove for the first time. It was also his first time on an Elco PT Boat, which as you know his Dad, Andrew Jackson Kirksey was killed on, Both of the guys stopped at my house for a wonderful visit.

Stan Pienkowski who has built 98% of all my models in my PT Boat Exhibit had a nice visit at my house and a nice lunch provided by my wife Stacia.

Andrew Jackson Kirksey's son Jack poses with artifacts from his fathers life. He donated these items to my exhibit, which I had framed.
