Hello Bill,
This is Phil, Captain of the Amazon Queen. I’ve been in Iraq for the past two years after the Queen sunk. It was one of those turning points in my life, so here I am surrounded by terrorist, and beach front property without the water. I’ll be home for a short while this August then I assume back to the war. It is wonderful to see the Dawn looking so nice. I am anxious to hear how you have been and how goes the business there in Iquitos. My skype address is amazoncaptain2006 Are you on skype? Please give me a phone number so that I can call you from Iraq. Regards, Phil P.S. I raised the Queen, and will be heading up your way this coming year.

Hello Bill, After three years in Iraq and over 4,000 patients treated, I am finally home. It is still my dream to bring the Amazon Queen back up river to Iquitos Peru and have a cup of coffer with you. Regards, Phil and Fmaily September 6, 2010
