My high school mascot...
Sarasota Sailors


Our HS Yearbook is titled a "Sailor's Log"...

My grandfather and mother were also part of the beginnings of the Sarasota Sailing Squadron, in the 1940's.

Ship named after my hometown...

USS Sarasota (APA-204)
(at Lingayen Gulf, probably around 1 August 1945)
She was a Haskell-class attack transport ship that was part of the Invasion of Luzon, the Invasion of Okinawa. and the Invasion of Ie Shima (Considered a part of the Battle of Okinawa).
She suffered kamikazi attacks, saved thousands of lives, and earned 3 battle stars during World War II.
There is a special museum memorial of her in my hometown.

My nephew's ships...
