Hey guys in all reality as a crew member I never felt I was a man of steel on a wooden boat. Hell, I was just a boy and never shaved until after I was in the Navy for six months. This I kept as my secret from my mates and would go through the motions of shaving without a blade in the razor.

After my first combat mission, my Skipper asked if I were Ok to continue as part of the crew. I told him I was scared but not a coward. "Sir, thank you for your consideration. I trust you and I will go anywhere you take this boat." Best decision I ever made.

Hell, the Captain took us to where the shooting was an we just did our job.

Thanks again for all of you that support our armed forces .

Sincerly, Arthur
