Found a few photos of when I had the PT BOAT MEMORIAL erected at the Massachusetts Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Agawam, Mass. It was a great ceremony attended by PT BOAT VETERANS, FAMILY, and FRIENDS. My dear friend Robert Voorhees did the art work on what would become the final draft for the stone mason. I had the ceremony on Memorial Day and it was such a wonderful morning. I am so sad that all those PT VETS that attended on this day have made their Final Patrol, but their memory will never be forgotten......

It is great to see these old photos Frank! Thanks for posting them. It is sad to see these heroes have all left us on their last patrol.

Thanks all. Jerry your right these Vets in the photo with me were such good friends and located right in my area of Massachusetts. Two of them lived three streets away from me. I miss visiting and talking with them, I learned so much
