Awe @Dustoff1970 I'm hanging in for a while. However, so far I am the only one doing the actual work and it is a lot for me I have been doing this for well over 26 years.

It has been my life's work, passion, and purpose so I will always do what I can to help.

I just found out that my grandfather who died in 1953 was a deserter from the Navy back in 1906. The wise guy then changed his name and joined the Army.  What a guy.  I never knew him because I was only 3 when he died. You talk about a mad sailor.  I think when he got orders for one of those long cruises he jumped ship and went AWOL.  He was a minor criminal in his youth. He got straight after he met and married my grandmother.   He did spend 6 months in jail for some other crime.  You know in those days there was no SSA or even driver's license required as far as I know.  You could go across state lines and start a new life with a new name.  This may be TMI but it entertains me.
