My Grandfather was a WWII vet as well and he'd be 91 by now. So, you can imagine my disbelief. I never said they didn't act like 'Old Salts' or that I thought it was uncool. I just just can't believe that they'd be around the ship waiting to sail off, in uniform no less. As far as the technical side of an old boat like that, yes they would be invalueble.
