November, 2004 Work Party Pictures
Courtesy John Matthews
The Matthews brothers - John and Ron doing
tour in the galley
The next few pictures are indicative of the
work party highlite....the work force being treated
to a real, live, barbequed pig. The 135# monster was donated by Hoot Gibson, barbequed by Gene Calloway and Sgt Carl Henderson,
and consumed by all hands
At the start of the bbq.....something like
7AM. From left to right:
Ron Matthews, Gene Calloway, Hoot Gibson (standing), Louis Delavina (squatting),
Sgt. Carl Henderson, and Sonny Walker.
The men who did all of the work. They
dressed the pig, hauled the equipment
and faithfully tended the poor beast for something like 9 hours.
