Re: Unknown Quarterman

Three things:

1) I believe he went to the Naval War College in Newport, RI shortly
before the Spring of 1984, when, as an Ensign, I attended Surface
Warfare Officer's School, also in Newport.  I kept getting his mail.

2) I saw him on TV sometime during his tenure as CO of the USS Guam.  He
introduced Bob Hope in one of those televised USO Specials.

3) During my short stint in the Navy, I think I heard: "... and you must
be Capt. Quarterman's son?" about a thousand times.

Unfortunately, I was never able to meet the man.  Based on comments from
those who did know him, he was very highly regarded.
