Great to see the Alamo finally has a website. I was on Alamo '64-'65. Didn't recognize anyone from the last reunion's pictures. I guess all you guys got old. Maybe I can make the next one. Sad to see some great shipmates on the taps list, Cdr Dordahl, BT2 Malone, and SK1 O'neill. Would like to know if anyone has a spare copy of the '64 cruise book. I lost mine a long ago, would like to buy one. SK2 Wernette is living back in Campo,Ca. Please add my e-mail address to the roster, firstname.lastname@example.org.
