If you are into history I would suggest reading about Andrew Jackson Higgins by Jerry E. Strahan. Mr. Higgins was
instrumental in the development and manufacturing (in New Orleans) of the different landing craft (Higgins Boats) used
during WW2. He also played a large part in the PT boats. A great read for history buffs'
Looking forward to seeing all of the “Old hands” and meeting many new friends in New Orleans.
