    Being old is a strange thing. Seems everything seen through the eyes is superimposed over
    memories of bygone days. I drive through the mostly empty downtown area of Batesville, I see
    myself with Mothe...

That is a submarine rescue vessel. She was (I say 'was' because she was scraped some years back) the U.S.S. Chanticleer ASR-7. She was my first ship and I was aboard in 1955-1956. Made one tour to WestPac.

Thanks for asking! I'll be happy to discuss anything about her if you are interested.
