Too often, it is only after a person has departed that we learn about what an amazing life they have lived and wish they had shared their stories sooner.  In this case, we are fortunate that North Carolina native and former US Navy and US Merchant Marine Richard Homovec has agreed to pull back the curtain on his amazing story.  Mr. Homovec has led an interesting lifetime that includes time with the US Navy, as a US Merchant Marine, professional photographer, land surveyor, and now as an instructor and educator with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. During this free presentation in the museum auditorium, Mr. Homovec will be sharing some of his experiences using the breathtaking images that he took during his experiences.  These images and accounts will touch on topics such as the grain trade, Cold War economics, sailing on rust buckets, the wreck of the SS Marine Electric, ETHKS, and some maritime accident investigation. Registration is not required.
