Favorite Memory When the Admiral got upset because Marsh Lundberg and I used the call signs
                (unauthorized) of "Boris & Natasha" during a landing exercise.
Worst Memory       When Jim McArtor and I missed the last shuttle to the ship just before sailing (in
                   Caribbean). We commandeered a sailboat to take us out and Captain had to put his gig
                   in the water to get us. I was supposed to take the ship out of anchorage, but was still too
                   drunk.

Special Comments I was only on the Yancey for a short time. Whenever I think of Navy I think of Her
                  first. Ran into an Ocean SunFish in Mid Pacific. It was so large we stopped and let the
                  crew see it. I went to Boot Camp in San Diego, Home on Boot Leave then back to San
                  Diego, boarded a DD, went to Oakland, waiting to call home the guy in front of me (I
                  didn't know) was trying to call Sylacauga, AL. It turns out he was Bill Stone and
                  worked for my brother in law before Navy. Became friends and made two trips to
                  Japan together--transferred in Japan.

Favorite Memory The night we dragged anchor and hit the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is certainly
                unforgettable. I will never forget the sight I saw running up to CIC the outside way and
                looking out over the bay and knowing we weren't where we should be. Better times were
                ahead though, like swimming in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean, and a
                cultural "hike" through Greece with three other Radar men
Worst Memory       Seeing Radioman Carr laying on the deck after a fall, but he did survive and recover

Favorite Memory In crossing the Atlantic enroute to the Med in 1966, we hit a bad storm. A mess cook
                from the ship ahead of us (maybe the Telfair?) fell off the fantail while dumping a
                trashcan. Middle of the night during a storm and a thousand miles from land. Our ship
                was able to pick him up although with great difficulty. Seeing a life saved is always a
                good memory.
Worst Memory       While serving mess cook duty in the spud locker, I got to peal about 300 pounds of
                   spuds everyday. I kept my knives sharp and could whack a carrot into slices that would
                   fly across the room. Unfortunately, I whacked my finger and sent a slab of finger flesh
                   across the room along with the carrots. O well! Let's see..It was during Vietnam..hmmm
                   can I get some kind of medal for that? NOT!

Special Comments       Last month I came across an old 1947 popular science magazine that my dad had. Lo
                       and behold there was an article about going to the South Pole and showed several
                       pictures of the Yancey, but didn't mention the ships name. But good old number 93
                       clearly is visible.

                                                                                         Text40:      Ho      F

Favorite Memory I remember guarding a shipmate that spent three days in the ship's brig on bread and
                water. I remember all the hard work associated with loading and off loading Marines
                and their equipment. I remember all the horrible working parties and all the at-sea
                refueling event.s
Worst Memory       My time on the Yancey taught me to hate the Navy, hate sea duty, and hate lifers, yet I
                   became one. Fortunately, I left to go to a Class A school, and was never assigned to sea
                   duty again.

Special Comments I entered the Navy during the Vietnam buildup, and was assigned to the Yancey
                  between boot camp and Class A school, while I waited for a billet at school. I
                  remember my division officer (Ens. Critchfield, or something close to that) offering to
                  send me to cargo handling school if I declined my orders to school. Oh, how foolish
                  to believe I would want to do that!

Favorite Memory The Med Cruise of 1970. This was the last cruise of the USS Yancey
Worst Memory    I was away on shore at radar school when the Yancey hit the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in
                January, 1970. Coming back and seeing the damaged ship at the pier in Norfolk, VA
                was my worst memory.

Special Comments       I work for a US company, but I live and work in Shanghai, China now. I will be
                       unable to attend the November 2006 reunion. I wish everyone the best. After seeing
                       the history of the Yancey on the web, I fully realized how the Yancey had been in
                       major events of the US Navy from 1944-1970. It was just not another "Navy cargo
                       ship."

Favorite Memory I really enjoyed my stint aboard the USS Ruff
Worst Memory    I did very poorly aboard the Yancey. I was not mentally prepared to make the best of my
                service there. Our collision with the Aigol was not a good memory

Special Comments       My enlistment was involuntarily extended at Rota. I was put under a lieutenant there
                       who helped me and others to discover that doing are absolute best was the only way
                       worth serving in the Navy. He was a born leader. There are so few.

Special Comments     I am entering this information for my father, Paul David Yancey, Sr., who passed away
                     on January 5, 2007. I found the reunion site before cancer took his life and shared it
                     with him. He would have loved to have known about it and attended the last reunion.
                     He was a Bosunmate on the USS Yancey. Perhaps you could remember him at your
                     next reunion. His obituary can be found in the Xenia Daily Gazette:

Special Comments       We took her to Hunters Point Shipyard to be decommissioned. I was transferred to the
                       Naval Gunfire Support School, Amphibious Base, Coronado, CA. where I finished my
                       tour of active service. This in May of 1959.
                       For years I've wondered about the YANCEY and all the people who served aboard
                       her. To say the least, I was somewhat shocked to learn the YANCEY hadn't been put
                       to moth balls after I left her. Please keep me informed of future Reunions and Thank
                       you for the service you render America. Joe Yount
