From ship-board cabins to outpost in Qatar. . .

WHAT of AA in out-of-the-way places? We all know that in the States an AA is just as far away as the nearest telephone. Most larger towns, and many smaller ones, are sure to have a group, and AA can be had for the asking. But what of the men on ships? What of foreign countries? What of those places where communication is slow and unsure, where prejudice still exists, where the "town drunk" is ostracized or run out of town?

Let us look in on a ship. This is not a typical sea-going AA set-up by any means, in fact it is unique, but it shows the spirit of the movement. Our sailor prefers to remain anonymous also, so we will call him Jim because that was his nickname when he was a baby.
