Two views of some of our crew at the Henry American Legion's Fish Fry... the fish was great and the fellows share that their hospitality was wonderful. Even though high water prevented the ship from visiting, the crewmembers did - and so many from the Henry area travelled to Peoria to see the ship.

Chaplain Perry Ballinger is in those spiffy dress Whites as he prepares to conduct a very important event - a Memorial Service. Perry, we don't thank you enough for your spiritual guidance and for the wonderful example you set by the life you lead. May God continue to bless you!
