    Great song, but I have to play this one every year to get the real scope of the tragedy.

    Time flies, but we still get the Gales of November. Some things never change.

    244 year anniversary for the Marine Corp too. If you see a jar head today, give him a hug...but not too hard cause they're a bunch of Sissy's...

    Sorry Nostro...couldn't resist a poke at em!

    While we talk about the Mid West ships that have gone down in November, you never hear much about the salt water versions. I was trying to think of one that went down in a November take in the Atlantic but I couldn't come up with an example, maybe someone here knows?

    I have dove a bunch of wrecks in the Atlantic but they were all torpedo induced and not weather related. RIP sailors...

    Does not seem that long ago. In the early 80's were we at the Soo Locks and I was telling my nephew and son that that was the ship that went down. One of the people working there came over and went and got pictures of it the last time it went thru the locks. He said he knew everyone on board. RIP crew

    My cousins had set their deer tent up in the Luther swamp a week before opener and when they returned the tent was torn up from that storm. R.I.P. to the crew.
