Armed Guard and merchant marine friends, |
Just to let you know I have been in touch with Don Horton by e-mail and have been able to find useful information for him. I helped him locate a member of the merchant crew of NORTHERN SUN who remembers the incident Don describes. That man gave Don the names of two more crew members, one of whom was directly involved in the rescue of the tug crew, including Don's brother. So decades after the fact, Don is learning what happened to his brother. Isn't that amazing? Sometimes I am just astonished at what one can find on the internet.
It is experiences like this of just the past two days that make my job as your webmaster so interesting and so gratifying. And before me, I know that Tom Bowerman had the same kinds of experiences and successes.
Keep those cards and letters coming, folks.
