I served on The big Ash from Sept. 1955 until Nov. 1957.I started out when I came aboard in the engine room. When my 3RD class metalsmith rate came through I went to the metalsmith shop where I worked with Kenneth King. He was a 3RD class shipfitter. If any one remembers me please sen me an E-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org.I recently found Kenneth King after some thirty years so I know it can be done.He lives in Coloroda now.
