    Page 49 of the story on The Mosquito Fleet has a great photo of the men of PT 190.

    This excellent photo looks like a still from a movie! One can almost read a story from their faces. Foreground left, he's older, but wise and skilled, not too much joking around. To his right, in the jacket is the alpha male as it were of the bunch, brave and a little cocky, the men look toward him for battle inspiration, his posse further to the right in a V formation. The Lieutenant at the helm educated and driven, but not a physical man, his assistant behind him is clearly of Nordic decent, probably Pennsylvania Dutch or strong German heritage.

    What do we know about the men in this photo? What were there names? Did they make it through the War alive? What happened to them after the War?

    Their boat seems to be a decorated one with several kills, what else do we know about PT 190?
