"What a wonderful week at the FDR Reunion in New Orleans!
Made new friends, saw many old friends, did some neat stuff, saw some great sights. Shipmates share a bond that is like few others. A ship's crew works, fights, plays and lives together 24X7. You win as a crew or your ship goes down!
It's a bond like no other.
Now, 60+ years later, we're older and slower, but we're still shipmates!"   Bob Siefker
