Don & Betty Seger (12.24.05)
- I got a special phone call on Christmas Eve from my good friend
Don Seger. Betty is doing better but is still recovering from
her stroke. As Don explains it, she takes two steps forward and
one step back. Don will also be undergoing eye surgery in Jan.
for cateract removal. Don, you and Betty are always in our prayers.
Albert M. Balgo (12.26.05) - I got an
email from Albert's son today. Albert is quite ill and made it
through the Christmas holiday, but is getting weaker. My father
knew Albert and like the rest of the crew, Albert is very proud
to have served on the USS Idaho. Your prayers are appreciated
and cards and letters may be sent to:
