Parents of San Francisco Sailors Speak Up
A San Francisco crewman's parent wrote to tell me that their son has expressed continued faith in Captain Mooney and his abilities. This, more than anything else, tells me how highly the crew thought of their Captain -- that even after he's been relieved, the crew is willing to stand by him.
Over at Ron Martini's Submarine BBS, the father of fallen submariner Joseph Ashley shares a letter he and his wife wrote to CDR Mooney. Please take the time to read it, and if you haven't already, please leave your thoughts for Mr. and Mrs. Ashley at the Akron Beacon-Journal website.
