Part of the problem with doing family history is that there is so much missing. Kelly and I both had relatives serving in the U.S. Navy in World War Two, and on a wide range of different ships. Kelly had a grandfather that served on the USS Massachusetts (BB-59) during the war, and I had a grandfather that eventually served on the USS Cutlass (SS-478). Interestingly enough, both of these vessels are well-documented, and even more fascinating, both of them still exist.
I guess the best thing I can say about 2014 is that I finally found work, and that it has been rewarding and continuous. I am truly grateful for that.
Here’s to hoping that 2015 will be even better, and that it will be so for all.
