Grandpa Ed Sabo and brood of grandchildren
Here's a picture of EN1 Ed Sabo, wife Marie, and their four grandkids  taken in October
of 2007.  Fortunately, the grandchildren got their  looks from their grandmother!

Steve Rivara and his brand new 2008 Chevy HHR
Steve just got out of the hospital after a tough fight. If these new "Hot Wheels" don't lift his spirits, I bet an e-mail to him at
ser@yhti.net would do it


MSSN Bob Maher, Skinny-T crewman, 1974-77
World traveler, Bob loves San Diego. This picture was taken at La Jolla.


EN3 Mike Martino, Skinny-T crewman, 1973-75
There was a knock at the door of Tom's house in Albuquerque.
Tom opened thre door and there was Mike, just passing through.


Andrew Dillon, the great white hunter, strikes again!

African safari - 2008
Anybody have a 50 cu. ft. freezer where Andrew can pack this beef?

"You're next, Thumper, you wascally wabbit!"!


The following is dedicated to all snipes, especially those who worked in Engine Room #3, 1975 thru 1978.

Mike Niemeyer and Ralph Easley with one ugly dog, sharing a can of Miller Lite.
(The dog is already half crocked. The others are on their way.)


Ralph Easley, Jim Featherman, & Mike Niemeyer hunting and fishing in Dolores, Colorado, Sept '08
(Squirrels, chipmunks and field rats, y'all better look out! These dudes mean business!)


QM3 Clyde Veltman on chopper.  Orange County Choppers of NY founder Paulie Tuetle Sr.
with Foo Manchoo and his son Mikey with long hair stands beside him.
What drives otherwise sane men to have a change of life crisis of this magnitude?
