Those who were able to attend the USS Mississinewa reunion of 2003 were fortunite enough to meet Dr. Rick von Stein or at least watch his video of Ulithi Atoll and the history that lies in the waters there. A tremendous supporter of the veterans that so courageously gave of themselves to defend our freedom and the world's freedom during World War II, Rick was extremely generous by not only providing a wonderful visual report of his dive on the Mississinewa but also traveled across the United States to attend and support our reunion.

Rick von Stein and his wife, Corbie have set off on an adventure that most could only dream of. Sailing the South Pacific in their sailboat "Emerald", Rick and Corbie have been keeping an electronic journal of their adventures that they share online.
