Cold Weather Tours

Every day on LST 325 can be an exciting day, and this past Saturday was no exception. While the temperatures were very cold, and the wind chill was even colder, the ship was well represented and cared for by her dedicated volunteers. We had plenty of tour guides, plenty of Maintenance crew working diligently, as always, and plenty of "office ladies." Which was a good thing, because we also had quite a few guests who were willing to brave the cold in order to tour the ship. Among those were two gentlemen from Japan, who seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed their tour. I don't know who their tour guide was, but he must have done a terrific job. We also had a gentleman come on board who had been stationed on an LST in the South Pacific where, I understand, he had been part of the effort to liberate the Phillipines. These are just a few examples of the incredible people you get to meet by being a volunteer on LST 325. Thank you, Evansville, for making this possible -- my hat's off to all of you!! Saturday was a great day!
