• Robert Dusbabek, USN - February 10, 2003

Enjoyed your book on Tarawa. It brought back lots of memories. All of my buddies are gone now; I am 78, pushing 79 hard.

Spend my time working with stained glass and wood turning. In the winter I spear fish on Lake Tetonka (we live on the lake) and spend some time with my son in Arizona. About two weeks is all I can stand out there; pace is too fast and too many people.

Here are a few pictures of me, my crew and my tent home. You can keep these as I have more.
