Each year while we were living in Nagasaki there was an International Sailing Ship Festival. Each year the Russians from Vladivistok would send a Russian Sailing ship to Nagasaki. I went down with my Russian sailor hat that I had from my first visit aboard a Soviet Union Military Ship in Stockholm obtained on June 22, 1965. They could not believe their eyes! How did you, an American get that hat???

Yes, it was a very special moment.
