The Log of the Asiatic Fleet. In the early 1900's America maintained a fleet of river boats on the Yangtzee and in China coastal ports. The movie "Sand Pebbles" with Steve McQueen is a classic portrayal. The entire fleet was known as the Asiatic Fleet. Veterans of the later time maintain an association served by a newsletter and by this log. A Facebook group and other links below assist with communications.
