6-20 Favorite Picture

None of the pictures on this page were taken by me, but I am a subject in one. This is from an article in All Hands, a magazine that was published while I was in the US Navy between 1979 and 1986. These pictures were taken and the article was written in 1982 while NMCB-3 was deployed to Camp Shields in Okinawa. Near the end, we were hosts for the Pearl S. Buck Foundation. We threw a party, bar-b-que and had an overall good time with these Amerasian children. It took me a while to find this article and I am glad that I did. I was very proud of my battalion and the US Navy to do such a great act of charity for these children.
