All the legal stuff...
All of the content on this page and it's related pages is original with the exception of what was pirated from other sites, or donated from admirers. Most of the stuff I did steal is atributed to it's owner, or writer, or photographer, or whatever, or to whomever stole it from somebody else before I stole it from them.If a picture is not identified, It is mine, or from a Vesuvius Cruise Book, or I don't know where it came from. Some content is US Government sites, and they shouldn't complain because I don't make any money off this, and I  pay my taxes.. Steal whatever you want - just do the right thing about it. If you steal pictures of named sailors, you'd better get their permission before you sell it.
If I could print smaller...I would. Good Luck, Darrel
A Tribute to the USS Vesuvius and other AE's
and AOE's and those who served aboard them.
