    Thank you Phil. April 19,1989 is a date chisled into the history of my family. Everything changed, as it so often does, in the blink of an eye. Even after 32 years, the weight of that instant feels heavy in the weeks and days surrounding this time. Thank you for honoring my brother, and all the USS Iowa family and friends left behind in that flash.
