PHCS V.O. “Mac” McColley Memorial Service info

From Mac’s Daughter, Dear Family and Friends, You may know by now Dad passed away unexpectedly on January 18.  I’m hoping we’ve reached out to everyone, but I fear we may have missed someone.  If you would be so kind as to forward this message to others you think we may have missed, we would be very grateful. We invite you to attend his Memorial Service on Monday, February 12, 2018, and the Celebration of His Life immediately following at the home of his son Michael.  We know so many of you live so far away in other cities and states and understand you can’t attend, but we want you to know you are in our hearts. Sincerely yours, Julie […]

Photographers Mate training manuals.

Bob Lawson bobhudlawson@Gmail.com   Mickey…Please excuse this method of getting my message to you, but this was my only access to your address. I have a wealth of old Photographers Mate (remember them?) training manuals, one dated 1918. Would the association be interested in my donating them? If not, and any other individual would want them they would be for sale or donation, depending on their use. Bob Lawson PHCS(AC) USN(Ret) 1418. E Sonoma Cortile Washington UT 84780 (435) 680-9812 This comment came in from Bob Lawson.  NANP does not have an archive area but is there anyone who would like these?  Is there any need for these in Pensacola at the display in Building 1600?
