Stories

Aug. 18th,68

I was with Roy on Aug. 18th when we ran into the ambush. I had know Roy for over four months and had shared some beers and some good times. He was a Great Boat Capt. and was well liked by everyone. I think of him and the others we lost that day almost everyday, but especially on Aug. 18th. Fair Sailing Shipmate.
