What's in a Name?         
"The following historical account is factual information obtained first hand from an interview with Captain Richie in the living room of his winter home in Cape Coral, Florida.  This interview  was duly recorded in this log by me, his son Stevie, on January 9, 2011. Although I have heard many of the "old salt" stories told during the course of my life, sitting down with Dad, reliving them in the sequence that they occurred and having many more facts added in, taught me many more things  that I never new about the man.  Mom was present too and added to the factual interview. I hope you enjoy the experience as much as I did re-creating it   Some of the exact dates were not recalled or are guesstimates, but this old salt is still as sharp as a Gamakatsu."
