The weekend of April 5th Scott Vaden, Jim Early, Keith Carlaw, Fred Recker and Mark Parish made the trip to Little Rock, AR to see the USS Razorback.  Friday and Saturday night we stayed on board and slept in the bunks and enjoyed the fresh diesel aroma.  Saturday was a busy day with free admission to tour the boat to the open public.  Nearly 300 people took the tour and made their way up and down the hatches and through the boat.  About 2:00 PM there was a cake to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Razorback.  

Keith and Fred stayed on through the week to help in boat cleanup and restoration and Fred was inducted into the Holland Club on board Wednesday.

It was a great trip and one that everyone should make if at all possible next year!
