At the 1962 Christmas Party on board the Proteus, we were
assigned to take care of two children from the Kirn Children's Home.
Think about this, they were about 10 years old then,
now they could be grandmothers. And yes, that's me.
And the person on the right side with a shadow on his nose is
Bob Peters. This was brought to my attention by a email from Bob.

The Chaplain is the officer in the back ground.
Art Dodge is the sailor to the right of the Chaplain.

Bob Peters is at the left ( only half of his face ).
One might think that Bob was following me around to get in the pictures
so 35 years later he could see himself on the Inertnet.
The real reason is that the mess hall was crowed and thats where Santa was.

The lights say, Peace On Earth, and we would add, Or Else!

  That was then,
This is now.

But....

On 17 September 1999 the USS Proteus/IX 518 was taken from Puget Sound Naval Shipyard to the inactive fleet at Suisun. Ending the Ship's nearly 56 years of service to the United States Navy.
