John Baxter

John Baxter served aboard USS Thomas J. Gary during the 1965-66 deployment. Seems that John and I worked for the same company until his retirement a few years ago, and we have a number of mutual acquaintances, but we didn't know this until early 2004. John sent along a large selection of photographs from his collection.
