I was the driver for admiral Harris
It was a great job and the admiral was a great man
When we were aboard I worked on the flight deck
Easter 1954 they were practicing night landing and we had accident
I still remember it. I also lost my friend on the flight deck walked into a prop
But over all it was a great trip I am very proud that I got to serve on the ty

Spent 3 Years in Aft Eng. Room. 3 Westpac Cruises. Many long hours on Watch.  Saw many "Exotic ports of Call", Olongapo, Yokosuka, Sasebo, Hong kong, and Singapore. I remember standing watch in dungaree Jacket with Knit Watch Cap, when we went up to the Sea of Japan, when the North Koreans seized the Pueblo. Coming up on 50 years since Discharge. Lot of Good Memories..  The Bad ones seem to have faded.

First ship out of A school.  Remember carrier quals with A4s , A7s and F8s and of coarse all the ASW A/C. Then off to pickup Apollo 16.  Becoming a Shell Back.  Then back to North Island to replenish then off on a short West Pac. Then back home to prep for Apollo 17 and Sky Lab 2.  Stayed with the Tico till her last Day. Had many good friends but have lost touch.  Finished active duty aboard USS Jouett DLG 29. Quite a change, Loved both ships But the Tico was my home.

Hey thar, mateys (LOL ), been a long time. Was transferred to Big T via the Sacremento in the Gulf while being resupplied, what a trip hanging from that basket, whoa!  Was Gunners Mate and worked the mags and hangar deck, occasionally the flight deck.  If you  see the photo of two of us pushing a loaded bombcart, I'm the guy in the background (not the one with the nose, just bustin'). Hope everyone has had a good life and is healthy.  WElcome Home...
