From Ken Frank -
Early Morning in Wheeling


LST Fans on the Ohio River


On the Ohio River to Wheeling


Fred watching the river go by



From Chip Lanham-

The river seems quiet after all of the Sternwheelers pulled out, but the riverbank wasn't! More visitors today in great numbers!


Irwin... you're supposed to give tours to the tourists... not Dusty!!!


As tired as the crew is from all of the hard work, they need time to relax too!


Another beautiful sunrise on the Ohio... Wondering what this new day has in store


For the SeaBat, it was a rare treat! Earl, a shipmate of her Dad's toured the ship and was given a wonderful welcome - even if she was back home and at work. Many thanks to those of you who showed Earl a wonderful welcome home! I am forever indebted to you.

Sure have enjoyed all the great pictures and stories coming out of this cruise. The Ol' Gal looks fantastic! Congratulations to all of you that have made this happen; you're the best of the best!

A couple of these pictures reminded me of these pictures. The first one was taken at Salerno; your first picture reminded me of this. The second was taken during one of the 325's trips up the Seine River in late 1944-early 1945, compare that to the third picture down. This picture was taken by Ted Duning.
