Hi - do you have any pictures from Ron 16? If so, could you look ti see if you have any pictures of the 300 boat?

Thanks!

Colleen,
I checked my PT pics, but I don't have any of PT300.
If anyone replies with a PT300 picture, I would like to add this to my Ron 13 and 16 collection.
I wish you "good luck",

Mike Crawford son of Jack Crawford (Rm2c Pt221)

Thanks for checking. It seems finding a picture of this boat is almost impossible! Well hopefully I will be going to the National Archives again, so maybe I will make it to the picture department. Usually there is so much to read that I spend all my time there reading old log books and so on!

Mike, that was a great idea posting such a letter! Thank you so much. I copied it and saved it with my other things from our 221 boat.

Hi Mike, I met a gentleman from Ron 16-B at the Wichita Reunion. His name is Donald Ryan and lives in NC. He was full of information, which I enjoyed his sharing with me. If I am not mistaken, he too was on the PT221 for awhile and the PT297 - do you know of him? What about the Squadron C.O. James Van Sicklen?

I didn't see the copy of the letter when viewing the message board. Did I miss something in trying to find your posting?

Randy,
I'm not familiar with the gentlemen you refered to.
The code to the letter has been deleted from the message. This happens with Photobucket.
Below is a direct link to the Photobucket site. You can view the letter there.

Sincerely,
Mike Crawford
