One thought on “Commanding Officers of the USS Lloyd Thomas

  1. Several Commanding Officers are lacking a photo. It would be great if we could picture all of them. If anybody has a photo that is missing (for instance, in a Cruise Book) I would greatly appreciate receiving it in the form of a JPG image file. If you have a flatbed scanner and an email account, the job is very easy. If not, somebody you know surely has a scanner you can use – they might even be willing to email the file. These Cruise Books aren’t getting any newer, so we need to preserve the information that’s in them.
