AUGUST 12, 2004

Early last week my good friend and shipmate Garland (Buddie) Summerall advised me that he would be in Little Creek on the 5th, 6th & 7th of August. I appointed Mr. Summerall to represent the LSD-26/46 Association and asked him to go aboard the 46 while he was in Little Creek and meet Captain Scovill, Commanding Officer of the 46 and some of the crew. I also asked him to take pictures for a public relations photo op. He went aboard the Tortuga last weekend and unfortunately missed Captain Scovill, but did take quite a few pictures. I want to thank the Officers & crew for their hospitality and for providing Mr. Summerall and his friend an escort and for giving them a tour of the ship.

Thank you Buddie for taking the pictures and sharing them with us.
Buddie has contributed many excellent pictures in the past to the Tortuga website.

Chuck, I called Tortuga on the 6th at 0800 and told them who I was and that I would like to meet with the Capt. They told me the Capt was in a meeting and that I should come over at 1000, I was there at 1000. The OOD told me that the Capt had left the ship. He got me and My friend EA Worth a shipmate of mine from the USS Arneb AKA-56) an escort and he took us around the ship. Everyone was very nice to us and was surprised that I was on the 26. I have some pictures and will send them to you one at a time so I can title them.
