Lee Fritts was a Sonarman 2nd Class aboard USS Calcaterra. For the past several years he and I swapped e-mails and an occasional phone call. Over the weekend of Oct 28, 2006 Lee and I were e-mailing, trying
to identify the sailor in the photo with him taken in Greece. Lee insisted the guy was Ed Lynch, and I knew it wasn't Ed Lynch. On Monday, Oct. 30, 2006 Lee died in a single car accident while driving home from
work in his restored 1976 Chevy truck.
On Nov. 13, 2006 Ronnie Floyd solved the mystery, the gent on the photo is Ed April, RM-2.
