*Tim Voges did an amazing job preparing Memorial T-Shirts for LST 325's arrival.  Many folks in the welcoming crowd were wearing them.  You can order your own  (as well as other souvenir items) right on this website by  clicking here  for the Ship's Store.  Proceeds of these sales go to the LST Memorial Fund.
