Every year when I visit the State of My Birth I usually visit the "Freedom Rock."
My Bride and I.
Our Friends in Altoona, Iowa.
They were our tour guides around Des Moines
We were both shipmates on the USS Ranger (CVA-61) during a Western Pacific deployment in 1963, We did not know each other at the time. We both enlisted from Iowa. We connected via a USS Ranger Reunion Website.
