Was going through some boxes, and found a folder full of stuff from roughly 1989-1991. I managed to get some of them scanned and stitched together (with varying degrees of competency...)

A tour guide/map from Patriot’s Point in Charleston, South Carolina, circa 1989. We went down on vacation to see my uncle’s family. He was a navy doc, so they moved a fair bit. We’d also flown down to see them in Orlando, with the requisite trip to Disney Land, in ‘86 or ‘87 I think, and we’ve been down to their place in VA Beach at least a half dozen times.

I remember going through the Clamagore and the Yorktown, but not the others (I want to say the Savannah was closed for one reason or another). If we took pictures, I haven’t found them yet...

OPERATION: Desert Shield/Storm

Remember when Newsweek and Time were actually published magazines? I had subscriptions to both at the time, and there were pull-out maps/breakdowns of Saddam’s and the Allies forces. Timely, being we’re about 5 weeks out from the 30th anniversary of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait.
