 I'm a Plankowner and was talking to other plankowners and was told that when your ship in no longer in service you can get a plank is this true and if so how does a guy go about getting it.

I was Jimmie's classmate at OCS and Supply Corps school. Does anyone know who he married (I think a Brem gal)?  Maybe some in the Wardroom would remember his wife's maiden name? Am trying to locate him through his wife's family which may still be in the Kitsap area. Have tried the archives in the Brem Sun for wedding announcements but no joy.

Also, a former WW II Navy barge that is now used by the Puget Sound Pilot's boats is out of the water for maintenance.
