It was a great weekend for the LST. The re-enactment went smoothly and everyone enjoyed it. Every battle was packed with spectators. I think that we may have to double the bleacher size if we do this again next year. Prospects are good and the re-enactors tell us that this could develop into a much larger event.

We had 312 people go through the ship on Monday, plus we took the Re-Enactors through and we had a little over 100 National Guard Troops march onto the ship, and they too, were given a tour. That brought us up to almost 500 for the day. Sunday, we took 339 through. Not bad for a four hour day!

Oh! And by the way, our newest Gator Gal, Sherry, showed up! It was great to meet her.

Here are some display shots:
