Leahy-Grams (Leahygrams) And Pictograms* Provided By:

Mike Ryan - Jack Saxton - Ben Siebels - John Souders - Chuck Thunnell - Clay Stabler - Domenick DeFlorio - Chuck Kosch^

* Pictograms were the forerunners of the Leahy-Grams (Leahygrams):

Mike Ryan explains.......

"We wanted to send out a message to the families of the men on board
the Leahy. We thought that pictures showing the different jobs that
the crewmen did was a good way to do that. We presented our idea to
the Captain & XO and they thought it was a good idea. Thus started
the Pictogram".
