The Final Picture I took of the Hancock - Jake254 viewsI left ship in March of 1964, and turned to take this final picture of the Home I called Hannah. It was with mixed emotions. I will never forget that ship and the feelings that flooded my mind at that time. I was glad to go home, but I had wet eyes, turned, and walked out to the Front Gate.
