I congratulate all of you who have made the website possible, the amount of information you offer is spectacular. It is very difficult to compress all this into three or four pages and I promise that I will return to discuss your story on my website.

I just found the photograph I was looking for of the USNS Bowditch in Barcelona, for me the image is so good that I must protect it at all costs when I publish it in my article, therefore I will put a mark or with the author's name, which in this case is: WILLIAM H. "ACE" HUNTER PROPERTY

It is also a historical photograph of the port of Barcelona, since very few visible elements are still standing today, it is incredible!


This guest log message is from a Spanish historian who writes about the ships visiting the port of Barcelona. His blog entry dated February 13, 2021 in En Visita de Cortesía about the Sea Cowboys tells how SS South Bend Victory (later USNS Bowditch) transported cattle, horses, chickens, goats and rabbits to Poland in the days after WW II.

Wishing everyone a Very Blessed, Healthy, Safe, Happy Christmas and New Year.

John (Admin),

Please send me an email and let me know how to get all the stuff I have to you so you can post it on the site. In the process of relocating from this frozen land (Texas) to someplace where it stays warm and doesn't rain often, maybe two or three times a year. Also has low humidity and the predominant color is Tan.

Thanks in advance,

Best Always,

I was a radio operator at NGR and copied many encrypted msgs from the Bowditch and the Dutton, but was unaware of their true names until many years later.

It was great duty with a lot of isolation, and a lot of sea time.
