Sherman Breaking news.

Jack Schneider shared an email from Captain Steven Wittrock, CO of the Sherman. Jack and I just got off the phone after much discussion about our plans of action. This is a call to action for our Sherman crew(s) interested in the Hawaii Reunion / Decommissioning / 50th Year Anniversary of Sherman's Honorable service: More to come soon! What follows is Captain Whittrocks email concerning our Cutter's near future!:

Greetings from the Arctic.

I thought I would check in and let you know that as of right now we still on track for a decommissioning right at the end of March, probably about the 30th. I believe they are just working to finalize the date.

We have been keeping very busy up here in the Arctic and she is still running well with no lost ops days, thanks to the hard work of the Engineers. At the bottom of the e-mail are a couple of articles on our endeavors up here.

Very respectfully,
Capt S Wittrock
CGC Sherman
