Response to Some additional photos from LST 325

Thanks to all involved for sharing the great photography from LST Week ~ 2009, including the previous postings showing the MVPA Convention participants.

They are especially meaningful to the extended family of LST Ship Memorial supporters who couldn't attend and share all the well organized events. I seem to recall doubtful echoes from naysayers during the past few months that this could never be accomplished, so it is gratifying to see the fantastic turn out and well-attended events that continue to give Evansville honorable recognition as the Home Port of LST-325 wink.gif

The detail is amazing and as always, we can appreciate & learn so much from seeing the "insider" work with gadgets that keep the old gal steaming as before. Thanks also to Bob Pointer for his identification of the water pump!

What a great use of the tank deck to have exhibits arranged showing various components because this really gives visitors the total impact of what these ships were all about along with the technology that kept them going happy.gif

You have already earned more Bravo Zulu's and Tare Victor George's (WWII signal designation for "Well done") than we can count, but here's more for you (take your pick for your favorite version: Navy Newbies or WW II Vets wink.gif !!!
