Chris found an interesting paper in his Dad’s files. It’s a DRIVER'S MANUAL for the Mispillion!
|Chris's dad Henry G. Munson
Was a Submariner during WWII aboard SS-143, SS-291, and SS-269 then in 1948 DD-829
Mispillion has been part of Chris's whole life.
The 1952 photo above displays where Chris
met the soon to be QUEEN OF THE MISPILLION,
Penny Nelson. Penny became an official crew member of USS Mispillion
|As Chris viewed the Jan. 5th 2012 photos of the ship making its way to Mare Island; "God she does look grand sliding by those hills on that blue water. No tanker ever looked so proud. I have lumps to man." The vision made him think of the Fighting Temeraire being tugged to her last berth.|
