"The most interesting station I worked was WW2LST, aboard a restored Navy ship the LST-325, which hit the beach on D-Day in 1944 and was back on the air for Classic Exchange."

For those of you who aren't aware, WW2LST was our own Bob Wilder with his crew of Perry Ballinger (Radio Central) and Tom Pendarvis...

You fellows continue to teach us.. every day. Through the postings you make and the conversations, the questions you answer and the memories you share. I know how much I appreciate it! Others do too!

Yep, I worked WW2LST also when they were on the east coast cruise..
Great thrill, to work a ship out of the history.
And to think it was still in commision when I was in the Navy. Just that I wasn't aboard it. but I have been aboard a few lst's.
But to see a lst heading toward you while your standing on the beach, It's a site. wish I still had some of the movies I took, while on the beach as a Beachmaster..

Us old timers remember when 22 was love and kisses. It hasn't been used in a long time. Now, 88 is love and kisses. Us "sensitive" guys remember that stuff .
