Hi all - just wanted to say that I had a recent trip to Maryland. My sisters and I went to DC. We were able to visit PT Boats member Earl Richmond - we had a great day with him. He has been having some eye trouble but is in great shape!! I met Earl through the PT Boats board so it was nice to meet him in person.

We also went to the National Archives - I am forever in search of information on my uncle's boat, PT 300. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to come up with anything more than I already have. My sisters combed the photographic files of PT boats and saw many amazing pictures, but none of PT 300.

When looking for information on my father's time in the Navy I came across some dispatches from the 7th Fleet related to PT Boats. It is always wonderful to hold the actual piece of paper in your hands!! I made copies of the dispatches and planned on uploading them to the site, but can't figure out how to do it. I know you have to go thru the Photobuckets site, but it didn't work. Sorry - just not tech savy enough! Anyhoo - I could send them in a file to someone who knows how to post pictures. The dispatches do not have a great deal of information, but really cool anyway!!

Thanks!
Colleen

Please email the files to me, and I will see that they are posted. if they are already uploaded to Photobucket, let me know the album they were upload to and I'll get them from there.

Thanks,
Dick . . .
