Favorite Memory The "Sea Bat" that was discovered aboard ship, that was featured in the Navy Times.
                I remember the guys in the drafting room playing Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida"
                one morning at sea, so loud that we could hear it almost through the bow of the ship, and
                it was GREAT!
                Whenever I hear that song, I still recall that morning on deck.
Worst Memory       The storm off of Cape Hatteras where we took almost a 20 degree list!
                   The next incident was the break-in of my locker and theft of all of my personal items the
                   night before the end of my active tour of duty. My shipmates chipped in their uniforms,
                   etc, so that I would temporarily have full sea-bag for my final inspection. That just
                   shows how shipmates band together when needed!

Favorite Memory Many wonderful memories--Being at sea in November-Scotland, England, shipmates.
                Always being told that time spent in the USN would be the best time of my life and never
                believing it, only to find out otherwise. Puerto Rico, Working in the barber shop.

Special Comments I would like to say that we were only looking to reach our separation date. I never
                  knew how much the Navy did for me as far as a career, and also molded me to be a
                  very active member of society. My parents played a big roll in my life, but the Navy
                  did a lot of molding after the fact. I wish the Representatives of the Government felt
                  the same way as the little guy feels. God Bless the USA

Favorite Memory While at sea I was standing on the main deck looking out over the ocean. A BM1 came
                alongside and I said, "boats, that's a lot of water" and he replied, "Yes, and that's just the
                top of it".
Worst Memory        Huge storm on the way to Vera Cruz. It may have been when we went to Dominican
                    Republic crisis or to provide water to US base in Cuba. The chow hall was nearly
                    empty for two days. You could hear the expansion joints moving.

                hull. (Stupid thing to do)

Favorite Memory The 1957 cruise to the Mediterranean Sea. The long stay at Cannes, France. Hiking the
                kids from Cannes come on board to see the set up of H O Trains in the Electric Div Space
Worst Memory       While we were on the Med Cruise a crises broke out in the Mid East and we cruised
                   around the Med for 30 days and never saw land. On the 30th day someone thought we
                   needed R & R. We were in the middle of the Aegean Sea and dropped anchor. It was
                   announced that we could go swimming off the ship. This was enjoyable until I looked up
                   and saw several of the deck crew with BAR'S in their hands. They had these automatic
                   rifles for shark patrol. I was more afraid of this deck crew than any shark.

Favorite Memory Served but one hitch as a "Kitty Cruiser" aboard the USS AMPHION. It was a great
                experience. Traveled to places I would have never been without the Navy helping.
                Several stops on the east coast, plus Guantanamo, Cuba, San Juan, P.R> and Kingston,
                Jamaica. Made many friends along the way. Hope to see some of them in 2008.

Special Comments I have what may be the only copy (I have cherished it) of a Book given to all the
                  members of the last voyage. I wish there was a way to get a copy for everyone who
                  was ever on her. I have included two pages taken from it if it will help find any old
                  shipmates.

Favorite Memory Working in the Calibration Lab was a lot of fun with good people. Our boss, Ben
                Gorman (CPO) was a good man to work for. Working in the ET Shop was an
                educational time. I had just come onboard and was trying to put all the book learning to
                some practical use. A Petty Officer, by the name of John Noonan, was very instrumental
                in helping me getting things fixed. After a couple of years with him, there was virtually
                nothing I couldn't fix.
Worst Memory       Doing Fire Watch in the dead of night and then having to get up early to work. I hated
                   that. One day I was so tired that I went to the radar room and laid down on the floor to
                   sleep. Wouldn't you know that the OOD was showing another Officer around and caught
                   me sleeping. While nothing came out of it, it was very embarrassing.

Special Comments       My stint in the Navy was very memorable. Enjoyed the heck out of it, however, 4
                       years was enough.

Favorite Memory I transferred from the USS TATTNALL (DDG-19) to the USS AMPHION (AR-13)
                because it was scheduled to go to England and Scotland in 1969, but while leaving port
                the boilers blew up and we never went anywhere. We were tugged back in to port in
                Norfolk, VA and went to dry dock and I was on shore patrol for the rest of my tour.
Worst Memory       When I first went on board the USS TATTNALL, I was on the Deck Crew and I didn't
                   like it, we got up every morning at 1am, I did everything I could to transfer into the radio
                   crew and I made it sometime in 1967.

Worst Memory    New Years Day 1948, trying to get ashore following an announcement. New Years Day
                1948, I was in the mess hall eating evening meal when the signalman from the bridge
                came to me with a message. I was the father of a son born on 1/1/48. This was child #2
                and we were swinging around the anchor buoy in the harbor at Norfolk, VA. There was
                a terrible storm and all small craft were restricted to the ship. No one going ashore!.
                Since I had been in the Pacific when child #1 was born and didn't see her until she was 1
                1/2 years old, I was hell bent on getting home for this event. I talked to the OD a chief
                warrant officer and told him my problem. He said Nothing can be done. I didn't accept
                that and I got real abusive toward the Navy and my personal sacrifices. I talked too
                much and said all of the wrong things. The OD put me on KP duty for my conduct, first
                time on KP after almost four years in the USN!. Luckily, I was slated for discharge on
                1/23/48, so my penalty was short lived. I was transferred to the Naval Air Base at
                Oceanview and processed for discharge (honorable) and got a good conduct medal for
                three years of good behavior. Was late in learning a lesson, you do not put down the
                USN to an old MUSTANG CWO carrier man.

                   in sick bay, not the black hole in Engineering).

Favorite Memory The times my cousin Ruth (an Officers wife and very attractive) would meet me on the
                pier when we would be in Newport, RI. I would spend overnight with her husband and
                family, and she would take me back in the mornings. This created attention from crew
                members who would ask who she was. I'd reply "Just a friend."
