SHIPMATE PASSING: I received the following mail:

Dear Gentlemen:

It is with considerable regret that I inform you that David Nightingale passed on last August 2006. I know he was happy to be a part of your alumni group and truly enjoyed the news and activity of the website.

I didn't know how to reach you at the time, but the recent mailing (snail mail) gave me the information I needed to be in touch.

Warmest regards to all you who have so ably served our nation.

Sincerely, Mrs. David Nightingale

Shipmate Nightingale was a SK3 and served aboard the Altair 1962-1964. Mrs. Nightingale can be reached at 3 Chaucer St., Sandwich, MA 02563

REUNION: Paul Licker has volunteered to assist in the next reunion. Any other volunteers can contact Paul at Paul resided in Melbourne, Florida.

Best Regards To All, Charles Brecheisen, Holly Lake Ranch, Texas
