NAFTS Chaplain, Bob Campbell, is a man of many hats. In addition to being our Chaplain, he’s the Chairman of the Board of Directors at NAFTS too. Bob’s a history buff and much of his focus in that field concerns salvage vessels and their role throughout the years.

The short story is that we are on our Reunion Cruise. We shove off on 24 October for fun in the sun as we cruise to the Mexican Riviera. I sure hope you didn’t miss the boat. The NAFTS Reunion in 2011 will be on the island of Oahu in glorious Hawaii.
Were going to Hawaii shipmates! Sunday, October 23 is the official kickoff date with an early-bird tour of punch bowl cemetery.
This is it. NAFTS is off to Hawaii for 2011 and we’d like to see YOU there! It’s been a long and harsh winter and fun in the sun is just what the doctor ordered to chase away those winter blues. Hawaii has it all.
