This area of the site is devoted to the crew members and people who corresponded throughout the cruise.  Nothing makes a sailor happier than a letter from a friend or loved one.  The information they shared expressed what they were experiencing and seeing, making this some of the most historic records of the cruise.  In many ways they tell the "true" story of 16 battleships going around the world.  I think I spend more time in these cards trying to read what's on the back than in any other area of my collection.
