Hal Rogers (YN2(SS) '73-'75) sends the following explanation: "I think I got the dolphins when I was with VQ-1 Det Atsugi Japan. Took
several trips to Cubi Pt. in the Philippines back in '82-'85 and saw
them at the NEX. Anyway, I've been hauling them around for all these
years, and when I had to rebuild the entire transom, decided that's
where they will find a permanent home."
