Cruise1@together.net --- My father, Thomas W. Malone, served inn the merchant marine, USAT and MSTS for over 33 years. He was captain of many troop ships in WWII, Korea, and Viet Nam. He's gone now, and wasn't a salty story teller. He said living a sea life was enough - Why talk about it when you're home. I'm looking for any stories on the USAT Parker, USAT Imperial, and dozens of MTST ships that he was captain of. (posted 8/16/99)
