Proof that the bond of brotherhood among those who serve together remains in tact throughout the decade always seems to be shown to me. Yesterday, one of the guys I served with, presented me with a piece of wood...a small plank of teak...that once covered the main deck of the USS Colorado battleship.
I have the provenance to go with the piece of deck plank.
Though I have no personal association to this ship (my uncle was a sailor aboard the Tennessee, California and Pennsylvania during his WWI and interwar naval career), I am proud to be the caretaker of this piece of the Buckin' Bronco.
