Notes from the Captain
Posted 16 February 2006

Our LST 325 Newsletter will be mailed out on Friday Feb. 17, according to Mike Whicker. He says it looks great and has a lot of information and PICTURES. The newsletter goes out three times a year to our members. This will be the first one printed in Evansville. My wife, Lois, and Dianne Hill put it together and do an outstanding job. This newsletter is just LST 325 news You can become a member, just look at our website for the form and information. It is only $20.00 for one year at our entry level.
The ship fitters shop has been cleaned and painted. The LCVPs have been sandblasted and primed. We have a new display of military hardware that I am told looks great. I thank all those who are involved. I will see it Thursday.

********* A work week has been set for March 26, 2006. Talk to Mr. Whicker, Mr. Voges, or Mr. Adams if you want to participate. We have a lot of work to do to get ready for "Thunder"! (Click here for more info)

I believe, I will start charging Larry, Chris, the gator gals and several others -- they are having way to much fun on the discussion page. Most of this information is on the discussion page and a lot more. Actually there is more information than we want to know! Sandy continues doing an outstanding job with her "helpers" and Mike is coming along too! The wife and I will be at the ship this week and part of next week. I have been gone way to long. Glen probably needs to be jacked up, set straight, and pointed in the right direction! We had around 500 people tour the ship in January. I THANK EVERYONE FOR ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION TO LST 325.

Bob Jornlin, Capt. LST 325.

Work Week coming up for LST 325
Posted 15 February 2006

Bruce "Boats" Voges will arrive the afternoon of Sunday, March 19 to check people in and spend the week on ship thru Sunday, March 26. People can come and go as their schedules permit (don't need to commit to the whole week).

The guys may stay on the ship if they wish. If they do stay onboard, they need to either bring their own food or be prepared to go out for their meals, bring their own bed linens, towels, etc. The ladies are welcome to help out but unfortunately there are not quarters for them. The Home Life Studio & Suites offers a volunteer discount.

Bruce would like people to call him so he knows how many to expect to plan space and work. His home number is 217-446-1327 and his cell is 217-474-3355. 

A personal note from the WebSkipper:  I'd like to encourage absolutely anybody and everybody to provide material for this page.  By no means are submissions here restricted to just certain individuals.  The whole purpose of this website (and especially this particular page) is to share information about our LST Memorial with the entire community.  If you have any news to share at all, please just send me an email:  WebSkipper@LSTMemorial.Org -- all of us would be very appreciative, and we all want to know what's going on!

Situation Reports from XO Jackson Carter
for the period:  17 JUL 00 - 09 JAN 01  (see below)

CDR Jackson Carter was LST-325's Executive Officer before and during the voyage back from Greece.  In addition to his normal duties, he was an avid ham radio operator and enjoyed communicating during his down-time with other hams all over the world.  He also maintained a website for LST-325 which included all of his situation reports, as well as many photographs showing the hard work done in Greece getting the ship seaworthy that site is a must-see for anyone who hopes to understand what it took to bring this ship home.  Most importantly, Mr. Carter was one of the finest human beings one could ever hope to meet.  He passed away just five weeks after finally realizing his dream.  This website now carries on the work and the dream where he left off, and in his memory.  Thanks, Jack ... for being you.
Fair winds!
