On this day, let us remember the 331 men Killed in Action, while serving on PT Boats. They made the ultimate sacrifice, while doing what they loved, serving on PT Boats.
Let us also remember all from other wars, that made the same sacrifice. On this afternoon, I hoist a few to you guys,

Hey Ted,
I thought you guys will appreciate what the crew of the PT658 did to Honor the PT Boat Crewmen KIA or WIA during WW2. We copied the Memorial Board that was posted in Melville and recreated it inside our Boathouse Museum here in Portland OR. We could not find a hand carved Eagle as impressive as the Original, but I think our version does it justice. Sorry I had to crop the photo due to large file size.
