FLEET WEEK

Baltimore will be part of Fleet week from October 3rd to October 9th. I think the Blue Angles will also be doing their fly overs in Baltimore and Annapolis during some of the days.

Re: MISSING ARGENTA SUBMARINE

There has been two more sightings below the water but because of stormy weather they are on hold till conditions greatly improve. There is hope that one of the three sightings will be San Juan. Lets hope one will be.

Re: MISSING ARGENTA SUBMARINE

It has been reported that a new sighting has been located which could be the San Juan. Russia is sending its research vessel down for a closer look. Lets hope it is her and they can bring closer to the love ones who are waiting for some answers.

Re: MISSING ARGENTA SUBMARINE

There has been a possible sighting of the San Juan in about 1500 feet of water. Underwater craft are going to be sent to the location to check if it is the missing boat and if so can they find out what caused it to implode. Half Big Al + a little

Re: MISSING ARGENTA SUBMARINE

I was reading more about the missing boat today. If the boat had an implosion it was possibly in about 10,000 feet of water depth. No way to get to her. Also as we lost the first women in space they had the first woman submariner on board as one of their officers. Just a sad way to go. RIP crew. Hal...

MISSING ARGENTA SUBMARINE

The way things are looking the boat and its crew are now history. She was to be returning home with battery problems but then there was a indication of an explosion detected somewhere in the last reported area she was in. Sounds like a possible hydrogen gas explosion on board that was detected. If s...

Re: Happy Birthday Al Becker!

Thank you very much Tim. I feel like only twenty years old except for the leg pain and back pain and cannot hear audible sound anymore or very little sound that is audible. But I am hoping to reach that young age of 100. Half Big Al

D DAY 6 JUNE

Many of you were not born around June 6 1944 when General Dwight D Eisenhower ordered our troops to invade Normandy. It was a victory for the United States of America but it cost us around 9000 of our fathers, sons, friends to win the battle. So remember all those who gave so much for us to be here ...

DECEMBER 7, 1941

I wonder how many of you can remember that terrible Sunday. I was five years at that time and can remember Roosevelt coming on the radio as I was listening to one of my programs and made the announcement that the Jap forces have struck our Navy in Pear Harbor which is an act of war. This will be a d...
