Us KILLEN KIDS get together from time to time! I don't know when this reunion was but my Dad, frank Kroetch went to the reunion in San Francisco California a couple of years before he died - circa 1999. He really enjoyed getting together with his old shipmates and I really enjoyed hearing all of the stories. Including the fact that my Dad always thought he was the youngest on the ship but another man (boy) was two months younger.

That's me holding court in the midship passageway. The one in the far back is Hardy and the little feller in front looking forward is P. D. Brown. Knowing him, I also know what he is looking forward to!

A mystery photo. We remember the faces--need names.

Probably taken in 1945 (We were grownups by then!)
