Step Dad passed away
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.
