October 2nd Photos Page

Today a Memorial service was held onboard for Joe Moran.  I wasn't able to attend this event, the photos below were taken by others in attendance, and I thank them for allowing me to post them here.  Joe was a great guy and I miss him a lot.

It was Joe's final wish to leave the ship with a bang, and his
shipmates saw to it that it happened.  This is an amazing
photo captured just at the right moment, awesome!
