Did You Know?
While scouring through the internet for books or more information about the USS Hanson I ran into a special person that served aboard the ship. The subject's name is Salvatore Albert Lombino, or AKA as Ed McBain, the writer/screenwriter. It so happens that he wrote his first murder mystery, "Chalk", while serving on the Hanson. After receiving positive reviews form his fellow sailors he decided to become a writer.

In his memory, we have added him to our crew roster under his birth name. Salvatore Albert Lombino, 1926-2005.
