Step Dad passed away

Bill Gott CDR Ret and my Mom
Although I meant not to include much personal matters in my blog this is important enough to mention.

My Stepfather passed away yesterday afternoon after a long illness, he was 74.

My Mom married Bill much after I had joined the Corps and moved out and we didn't always have the best relationship but he had a good heart.

Bill was a alumnus of the Maine Maritime Academy and joined the Navy, retiring as a Commander. He was a Vietnam veteran as well serving in Cambodia.

I am leaving for the States tomorrow evening and return next Monday.
