JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

In September, I took a boat tour of the Bath Iron Works in Maine. This week for my photos, I am posting some photos of the tour including the newly constructed Zumwalt Class destroyer USS Michael Monsoor DDG-1001 (ugly looking things if you ask me) and Burke destroyer USS Thomas Hudner DDG-116. Who knows where Johnny G will end up next.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.
