I worked right across the passageway from the radio shack in the CIC. RD2 Donald Capron also know as Cap. I also went to fleet training school in San Diego before the recommissioning. I was an RDSN then and made RD3 and RD2 while I was aboard. I replaced RD1 Robert Shaw as lead Radarman just after we got underway for our second West Pac cruise. I remember you, Melman, Chief Winters, ETC Clouse, and several others. Do you remember Shaw, Tebo, Christensen, Corder, Dobis, Grant, Block, and Haskins? Send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you. By the way, do you know if Captain Kohler is still alive and how to contact him?
Does anyone remember the date Ashtabula inreped the hospital ship, I think it was the Sanctuary, in DaNang Harbor? I need date or any other verifying info that we were in DaNang Harbor for a VA claim. I can be reached at email@example.com or 570-289-4220.
