I would first like to thank Frank Andruss, Charles Jones and Kelly Evans from Signs Etc. Without the help from you this project would not have happened.

I always wished I had the original plaque from my Uncles PT boat PT 380, but the chances of finding it were slim to none. I decided to make a replica plaque as close to the original as possible. The idea came to me when I was reading Charles Jones book MTBSTC: Motor Torpedo Boat Squadron Training Center, I then emailed Frank to see if he had a original plaque and he did! Frank sent me a picture and measurements to go by. Kelly from Signs Etc in Sparta New Jersey made my dream a reality.

The plaque owned by Frank Andruss is from PT 593 ( picture below),

They did a very nice job. This will give others that had loved ones serving on the boats a way to honor them

The plaque is 8x5 same size as the original.

If anyone wants a plaque made here is the website for Sign ETC. http://signsetcsparta.com/

The plaque cost me $100 to make.
