Tuesday afternoon, not unlike the 1968 Moody Blues hit by the same name, I find myself at my desk, with the registration application of our 550th ssn-680.org member, Albert Plourde, III.

Al was a Quartermaster during the 77 to 81 time frame, and our 480th shipmate! He currently hails from Middletown, CT. Welcome Aboard, Al!

I’ll seize this opportunity to remind each of you that anybody that hasn't located a former shipmate not currently registered on the site and convinced them to sign up is dink, so get busy and get hot tracking down your old friends. This site exists to help Bates shipmates reconnect. Most of us here would testify that you won’t regret it.

Feel free to use the Quarters >> Missing Shipmates or Quarters >> Missing Shipmates >> Missing Shipmates Contacted lists to see what clues someone else has uncovered to help you in your search.
