Rest in Peace Sailor - Ron Riml USA

[Image]I haven’t checked Mac’s ‘Log’ in much too long – and will miss him. We ‘chatted’ occasionally through email – and I know he’s all to blame for my old ship’s bell winding up “Down Under” in Australia (see "Canberra Ships Bell and visiting Washington"). Reckon that’s a much better fate than being forgotten in some warehouse here in the States.

I served aboard USS Canberra from 1966 through 1968, and was lucky enough to visit Melbourne on her cruise there. Best ship I was ever assigned! (see "Ships Bell and visiting Washington")

Reckon I’ll catch up with Mac on Fiddler’s Green when my ‘Watch’ is relieved.
