New Photos added (11.02.06)- Time
is something that goes by too fast and we never have enough
of. For me, it has been finding time to make some updates to
this website. This week a fire was put on my seat in the way
of 80 photos that were sent to me by Steve Franklin.
I have received more and more inquiries for information regarding
USS Idaho crew members from the BB24 and pre-WWII eras. When
I saw these photos, I just about tripped all over myself trying
to get to my computer to start working on them. Thank you Steve
Fraklin for your kind gesture in sending those to me.
* USS Idaho Crew List - Wow! It floors me how I keep getting
email messages to add another name to the Crew List of the USS
Idaho. Days will go by with no one to add to the list and then
I will receive sometimes 2 to 3 in one day. The one thing that
nearly every message I receive has in common is the referral
of how proud the crew member was to have served on the Idaho.
I am always excited to add another name to the list.
Mail Call - The "Mail Call"
feature to this site is still in the works. I think this will
be a good addition to the contents of the site to post a few
'touching' messages that I have recieved over the past few years.
There are a lot of them that I am still going through ... I
am hopeful to have these on here soon.
Don Seger - I still have not heard any word about Don ...
if anyone knows how he and Betty are doing, please send me an
email - firstname.lastname@example.org
Words of thanks (10.09.06)- I
want to thank everyone who has contributed to the contents of
this website with photos, documents, comments, and entries in
the USS Idaho Guestbook *.
I receive about 4-6 email messages a month from the friends
and family members inquiring about or providing information
regarding the USS Idaho crew members. On special occasion, I
get an email directly from one of the crew members and always
feel honored and deligighted.
(Sadly the Guestbook service we were using went out of business

I will be adding the some of the emails that I have received
in past months in a new section of the website called "MAIL
CALL". I have been going back through the messages
and I think many will enjoy reading them. One thing that has
is common throughout the correspondances I have had with them
all is the crew of the USS Idaho are a special breed of men
who were and still are sincerely proud to have served their
country on the USS Idaho.
