    This is an informal photograph of Amelia Earhart, 1897-1937. She is seated between two women on a parade float in Atchison, Kansas. The two women may be Barbara and Lorraine Hellener, daughters of the City Manager, Earl Hellener. Also visible are the float's driver, spectators, and parked automobiles along the city street. A native of Atchison, Earhart spoke at Memorial Hall to a crowd of 3,500 people during her visit. The parade was June 7, 1935.

    My father "John" and three uncles. A true life band of brothers. All four spent 20+ years each in the service. They are all gone now.

    This is the Jicarilla ATF-104. My grandmother was asked to sponsor it in honor of her son's service records.

    It'd be a bit tricky driving that gokart with both legs on one side of the wheel. The young fella in the background doesn't seem too distracted by the competition. Maybe next year...

    Cool story. I haven't seen an image of an ATF in years, but my dad was stationed on a sister ship, the USS Quapaw (ATF-110) in 1956. I was an 8-year old then, but can still remember visits to the ship and the kindness of one of my dad's pals (one of the ship's machinists) who fab'd two axles for lawn mower wheels and gave them to me for Christmas one year. I used them to make a coaster car. Ships in this class were named for Native American tribes and provided Fleet towing, salvage, rescue and repair. Gary
