A Crew's Book
One Sailor puts the art back into documentation
For centuries, Sailors have documented their travels. From decorating sea shells and sea chests, to tattoos decorating human chests, Sailors have found a way to recall their ports of call.
"When I made my first deployment, that cruise book didn't seem to have a lot of importance to many of the Sailors or the MCs who were tasked to put it together, me included," said Stanley. "It was mostly thrown together at the last minute."
So Stanley made a decision. He would not put together just a cruise book, but instead a crew's book. What resulted was a clearly thought out, planned and organized book that had the whole crew excited about owning it.
Once I told myself I was going to do the cruise book, I talked with another Sailor onboard, Yeoman 1st Class Rickey Streeter, and he and I started brainstorming," -MC1 Marcus Stanley
