Favorite Memory When we were out to sea the whole ship was like a big family. Everyone worked, ate,
                and played as one big unit. We went to sea one time and the Capt (Horne) asked who
                wanted to go swimming in the middle of the ocean. Almost everyone voted yes. Then,
                the debut of the movie "JAWS" was shown on in the mess, and the next day only a few
                men wanted to go swimming.
Worst Memory       We were anchored off Crete, the water was rough, and we had to pick up the Captain
                   from another ship. We pulled along side the ship and when the Captain went to step
                   aboard, he fell into the water. He could have been killed by our boat crushing him
                   against the ship, but we pulled back and fished him out of the water and took him back to
                   our ship.

Special Comments       I would love to be able to go back aboard the ship again, but I don't know how to go
                       about doing it. Any suggestions?

Special Comments       In 1972 I joined the US Merchant Marines. I served for 18 1/2 Years. I started as an
                       ordinary Seaman and ended my tenure as Master in 1990
                       due to medical conditions caused by asbestos lung infection.

Special Comments       Glad we corrected those cranes, before I left. I was only there for 3 weeks..Why did
                       we not all buy a coffee machine and ship them home?! I was forced to rewire your
                       pots and irons with ground plugs, better than UL testing. If your spaces were flooded,

Special Comments       I would like to say I did a lot of growing up on board this ship. I believe it helped me
                       look at what our country has and how wonderful this country really is. I think anyone
                       getting out of high school should join the military.

Special Comments       To all former crew members, I would like to say it was an honor having served
                       onboard the USS PUGET SOUND with you!!. If not for your dedication to the repair
                       work performed, many of the destroyers we worked on together would not have been
                       able to undertake the duties assigned.

Special Comments       There were many things I didn't like about military life, but I'm sure that's true for most
                       of us. But there is a lot of it, I wouldn't trade for anything. I'm glad I served. One
                       ship is at the bottom of the ocean, one is in mothballs and one is serving a foreign
                       country as a flag ship. I guess I'm mothballed to a certain extent, but we all served,
                       didn't we? No one can take that away!

                       Repair, Sports, Seamanship, Engineering, she always set the standard. I hope this
                       Reunion maintains that high standard. I am not sending a photo, I would like my
                       Shipmates to only have the photo of me that they may (or may not) carry in their minds

Special Comments       It would be nice to see everyone again for sure, but the family budget is very tight right
                       now. Perhaps someday I will do that since I am from Maryland. DC is not that far at all
                       from my hometown. I do have one request though, I think in order for the rest of us
                       who cannot make it to this year's reunion. Can I suggest that someone will take time to
                       take pictures and post online for us to see.

Special Comments       Crewmembers and Friends, I will always cherish the time I served aboard PUGET
                       SOUND while she was the Flagship for Sixth Fleet, homeported in Gaeta, Italy.
                       Having served on the Sixth Fleet Staff for numerous assignments, the time aboard
                       PUGET SOUND is most memorable. I was also pleased that I had the opportunity to
                       assist in the Decommissioning Ceremony for PUGET SOUND.
                       One sad point is the recent loss of a former Commanding Officer, Captain John
                       Dachos, this past year. I did, however, attend his funeral services at Arlington
                       Cemetery.

                                                                                       Text40:    Gri     F

Special Comments       Sorry, I couldn't make it. Our son (born while I was on the Puget Sound) is being
                       married that weekend. Please E-Mail me if you remember me. I saw the Puget Sound
                       in the Fall of 1999 at the Inactive Ship facility near the Philadelphia Airport. It looked
                       pretty bad. You could see it from I-95. Have fun everyone.

Favorite Memory My favorite memories was traveling the Med and meeting new people in Spain and
                France. My fondest memory was of my girlfriend Pucci Tiziana from Frosinone Italy
                and the crazy guys in the 2nd deck division. Little Browny, Bobby Jones, Kentucky
                Bob, Murray and many others. The Puget Sound showed me how rich and beautiful
                people were and they kept a standard of respect and excellence for all. This helped me
                mature in life and left a valuable example that I leave with my children today.
Worst Memory        When one of the seaman fell from on deck down to another horse playing and paralyzed
                    himself.

Special Comments I wish I didn't talk XO CDR Brown on taking me back to the ship, to take me to
                  Norfolk because I kept coughing and passing out. The ship retired me in Sept to
                  Newport, RI until my retirement in Nov. Newport Naval Base was being shut down
                  and the ships were transferred to Norfolk. I would of liked a statement that he seen me
                  in the Chief's Club passing out and that I talked him out of canceling my early
                  retirement. I was doing this since 69 when I came back from Vietnam while serving
                  with patrol force in the Delta.

Special Comments I still look at the photos and relive the memories especially B-Div, "hole snipes" and
                  remember most of the names. Also was amazed during ship refueling that Chief
                  Kababik put his faith in me to keep the list and trim in balance taking on all that fuel at
                  one time without incident! Let's hear from ya!

Special Comments       I feel that the Puget Sound did exceptionally well in GITMO, considering that most of
                       the crew were right out of Boot Camp or never been on a ship before.

Special Comments Thank you for the wonderful times. You allowed me to be a Corpsman Stricker &
                  because of that, may be responsible for saving some lives. Looking back on those
                  times, the wonderful people I met, the great places we were allowed to visit, and the
                  superb memories of the oneness with nature I.e. sunsets, dolphins, whales, and so
                  much more. I really wish today that I had kept in touch with my friends on board.

                Chris Ledlow, Chief Wesley Cole, Mike Ruble (miss you guys), Med cruise, the foreign
                cities, the excitement of getting underway and the beauty of the ocean with no land in

Favorite Memory My favorite memory is when we left Bremerton and brought the Puget Sound down the
                West Coast, through the Panama Canal, and up the East Coast to the ship's first
                homeport, Newport, RI. We had many liberty ports on the way: San Francisco,
                Acapulco, Montego Bay, the Virgin Islands, etc. The best memory is making life long
                friends who I get to see once a year at our reunions. They are almost like family.

Favorite Memory The close crew we had, as many of us served and trained together in the same training
                centers. We were a well oiled machine. The music that we played, that we listened to
                and danced to.
Worst Memory       The time that I fell off the Yardarm while servicing the antenna and capacitors. The
                   Destroyer tied up to us had their microwave fired up, in spite of notices to shut down.
                   They fried me inside and I suffered from the pain until 1995.

Special Hobbies    Shooting sports
Favorite Memory Getting into a wrestling match with another ET2 over the plunger used to unclog the
                parts cleaning sink drain. In walked the Captain with a Mexican Admiral and the
                Admiral's niece. The smirk the niece gave me hurt worse than the Captain's angry glare.
Worst Memory       Shore patrol duty in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in 1968 and being caught in between two
                   groups of angry Marines with nothing to defend myself with but my ability to keep
                   talking and a club that I couldn't remove from its web holster.

                times with good friends to scratch the surface. Even swinging by a rope from the
                material handling passageway to the barge when the Italians were going to drop the load
                on us again (and burning the *** out of my arm hanging onto the diesel exhaust for dear
                life rather than falling into that nasty water) is a fond memory in retro!
