What fuels my commitment to OHPRI...

My interest was sparked by conversations with my friends Vice Admiral Tom Weschler and Bart Dunbar prior to the steel hull being towed into Newport Harbor along with owning and sailing the Schooner Tree of Life for 12 years. I've supported the OHP effort from the very beginning and take inner pride to see the Oliver Hazard Perry fulfilling the dream of a few committed men who dared to "Dream The Dream." I congratulate them..!!!

Today, the State of Rhode Island stands tall on the oceans worldwide.
