Hello, Gordon. Yup, looks like we did the exact same things.
York left about 6 months before you came aboard and I left about 6 months before he left. Did you know Juan Martinez? I’m not sure when he left. I trained York and Martinez to run the cargo control board. Great guys. Yeah, I worked in the fuel lab for awhile too, and of course the SF shop.
I think you mean LTJG Otto, AKA Otto-matic. He was the last div officer I had, shared duties with LTJG Will Charbonue (probably misspelled) who was DC and liquid cargo officer as well.
Keep checking in hopefully we can find more shipmates. I’m going to email York, he’ll probably know some guys you knew. Later.
