I just want to let all of you know a couple of "news items" which you may or may not be interested in knowing about.
On June 20th, at either 1:00 PM, I will be giving a presentation on PT boats (what else) at the Senior Center in Ellington, Connecticut.
On October 24th, at either 7:00 PM, I will be giving another presentation on PT boats for the Ellington Historical Society at the Hall Memorial Library in Ellington, Connecticut.
Additionally, I am planning to making a research trip to the National Archives branch in Boston to do research this summer. Perhaps that will put the accusations made by two people "of note" on the Internet that I either re lie on secondary sources or that I simply copy the work of others to rest once and for all.
Another news item that I want all of you to know is that I'm finally completing work on a novel that I started to write as a sophomore in college in 1981. It should be out in print in the not-too distant future.

PT Consulting was founded to allow me to aid fellow authors, historians and scale modelers as we preserve our heritage and our history.
Through this web site I will endeavor to provide up-to-date research on things like camouflage schemes and armament packages and the like. See special note from Garth
Also, I will provide information on where to purchase matched paints and after-market accessories for your models to give you the best and most authentic look possible.
Please look around...and feel free to send me your thoughts and comments on how I can continue to improve this web site.
