Story:
As I grow older and my sense of history grows, I am more and more appreciative of the time I spent on the Iowa. I met my life-long friend Dave Welch, got to experience Fleet Week in NYC, and lived through the turret 2 explosion. The accident has been a major influence on my life. I have tried to serve people in a significant way ever since as a repayment for all of the kindness shown to me by the great people who never knew me.
