CULVER'S Shooting page - Unfortunately, Major Culver's website went down shortly after his death. Major Culver was a hero of the webmaster's so thankfully, we had enough foresight to save the pdf versions of Major Culver's sea stories on a local drive before the webpage closed down. So, for your historical reference, we have many of the Major's articles archived on our cloud drive. It's a bit cumbersome reading through the stuff but it's mostly there. Including my favorite articles below that now link directly to our archived copies.

Bob Rohrer's USMC tribute page - from Bob's home page...Age has made me more sentimental and caring about those who had been important in my life. I am especially interested in communicating with those I served with in the United States Marine Corps and friends I worked with in the aviation and motorcycle industries. I cannot replace USMC buddies or those with whom I flew airplanes and raced and rode motorcycles. Yes, time changes people but I am finding some old friends can become new friends again.
Sharing stuff was once cumbersome. Even with a meeting to look at scrapbooks, or exchanging a few photos in the mail, the details were still difficult to convey. Now with the Internet we have instant worldwide communication and a whole new dimension for sharing information.
