We are so sorry to hear of Doug's passing, to soon gone but will remember the good times. Take care of yourselves.
Condolences Judy. Doug and I went thru all the MARS phases together way back when. We only served on one ship together. I have fond memories of him, especially his chuckle. Sincere condolences - Yours Aye... J.M. Joyce RCN Ret'd
