Have any news about members of the USS Idaho Crew? I have recently received news of some of the USS Idaho crew who are in need of our prayers. If you have any news or prayer requests that you would like to have posted here, please send me an Email.

* Dave Graham - I just got off the phone with the wife of Dave Graham (president of the USS Idaho Association) and it is great sadness to me to hear that Dave passed away this past October. Our prayers go out to Mrs. Graham and their family and many close friends.

* 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:
