Dan Raustadt's Slides

Dan sent these slides to me via e-mail. Dan and I were aboard the Columbus at the same time. We both made the 68-69 and the 1969-70 Med Cruises
Here is what Dan said with the slides: "I've attached some photos that you can use for the site. I was a radioman aboard the Columbus during the 68-69 and 69-70 med cruises. I played lead guitar in the Columbus' (not the admirals's) rock 'n' roll band. We entertained at USO's and other places at just about every major port we hit.

All photos are from the 68-69 and 60-70 cruises.
Thanks again for all of your hard work!
