    Lost most of my photos from a couple floats and stateside stuff in a fire. What I have posted here is all that's left. Didn't get to see Edinburgh. We went to Bergen Norway. Great town. They treated us like kings. We could do no wrong (we did plenty). I was over at French Creek at Lejeune. Had an old Chevy pick-up that wouldn't pass safety inspection, so I used to sneak on thru the tank trails off Sneeds Ferry Rd.
