After some target practice, we made several ashtrays from the 3" shells
we used a 45 cal. soldiered to the top for the holder
I kept this one for myself. One advantage of working in
the Shipfitter Shop

You won't believe where I came across this Atakapa coffee cup.

My wife and I were strolling through a small antique shop here in

Sugar Hill, Georgia when she ask me the names of the ships I was stationed on

I told her the four ships and then she pointed to a coffee mug setting on top

of an antique cabinet. We were both amazed that an Atakapa coffee mug had found

it's way to our little town here in Georgia.
