The Robalo Goes on Patrol

Sorry, this is going to be a shorter post than it deserves, but it’s already 11 pm and I’ve spent the day at the docs and doing graphics for the book (trying to get the maps as accurate as possible is proving to take much longer than I thought, but I wanted to get these right, or at least as close as I can get to it.)

But I couldn’t let the day pass without acknowledging that sixty-six years ago today, Robalo left on her third, and as it turned out, last war patrol.  We’ll see her again soon, before she vanishes.

She carried a full crew compliment of eighty-one men.
