Carrying the Message

To the loner

In some respects I am in the same boat you are, but I have a little advantage as I do hit ports where there are groups and other activities I may attend. You see I am a merchant mariner. Many of the ships only have but one member, but I make it a point to let it be known I am in AA, from the captain down. I also contact the doctor on board, if there is one, and anyone else that might know of a person needing help.
