Change at the Helm for The Jerseyman
Well, as Iím sure many of you know by now, Tom
Helvig has relinquished the reins of The Jerseyman and passed it on to a
group of volunteers on the Battleship. Iím sure I speak for all of us
when I say Bravo Zulu Tom for a job
well done! Having published 75 issues in the past 10+ years Tom has set
the bar high for the new gang, but weíre feeling up to the challenge and
hope to prove ourselves worthy in the coming issues.
will still be published four times a year, and we plan to continue to
bring you the same kind of firsthand accounts and historical stories
that Tom delivered over the years. At the same time weíll also be
introducing some new features centering around daily life on the ship
today. When it comes to the historical sea stories Iíve got to be
honest, I served in the Army in the late 70s and early 80s, so I donít
have many sea stories to share, but I encourage you, our readers, to
continue to send in your stories and share history.
