These photos came from Iryll Jones, USS ORLECK sailor (1980-82).

He discussed them this way.”You sent out pictures of specific areas with equipment identified with arrows on them. I tried to match the areas with the pictures and red arrows, so you can see the progress and what we pulled. Image 03 has component about to be pulled, image 1, 2, and 3 show items removed which matches to your pictures sent out.” Note: He is speaking of pictures that Rich Angelini took. Not sure if they are up on the site yet.
