Mr. Leech. We Ticonderoga Veterans honor the service of your father-in-law Robert Eugene Lewis. We are saddened by his passing on 8/29/97 and we will list him in our obituary notification in our quarterly newsletter. We will also list his passing on our veteran roster on our Ticonderoga Facebook page. I do have your father-in-law's name being listed on a ships roster that I have dating back to 9/24/44 showing him coming aboard as an ART2c. His service will not be forgotten. Sincerely, George Passantino - V-4 Div - 1967-1970.

My Father-in-Law,Robert Eugene Lewis,served on board CV-14 1944-1945.He was AETM1,V-4 Division--CIC--Radar.He helped fight the below-deck first Kamikaze fire,January 1945.

I wanted to check and see if he was listed on any of your rosters for veterans.

He passed August 29,1997.Age 72. He left us a leather-bound Ticonderoga "Year Book" from the war. Included were the "Big-T" newsletters and a USS Ticonderoga "Personal Information Handbook" from DURING the war,the latter amazing in its blunt talk.

What does it take to make sure he is listed somewhere in the Association...and NOT forgotten by surviving shipmates?

Thank you for your time.

  I attended the TICO reunion in Las Vegas and had a very nice time. I plan to be in Tampa next year. Granted, I did not meet anyone that I'd known on board, but I met a lot of sailors with whom I had much in common. Our organizers put a lot of time and effort into the reunions and I'm grateful for their commitments. Thank you!

re: Hartney. If you look in the "Links" section at the top of the page, click on it and at the bottom is a link to cruisebooks. Go to the Tico & the years you want and you may be able to get some information about your brother, maybe your dad too. It'll take some digging; another site to look into is Ancestry dotcom, they have a navy military section with lots of info. Good luck.

My Father, Joseph C Hartney served beginning Aug, 1944
My brother, Joseph C Hartney Jr. Also served on the Ticonderoga during the Vietnam War era, but not certain of his rank or dates on this carrier. He graduated from the Navy cryptography school in Pensacola, FL in the mid-sixties but not sure of his dates or his rank.

I once saw a photo of Dad in an Operating room ( I believe he serves as an OR technician), but I haven't seen this photo in years, nor am I sure this photo was taken on Ticonderoga.

Any advice you can offer about mwould be most appreciated!

Best Regards, and Thank You ALL for your service to our country

My father Joseph Hartney served on the Ticondaroga however he and my mom are both deceased and I have little to no information. I was born in 1951 and his service was before that. This is all I'm sure of. Any help would be appreciated

I was Ships Company from August 22 1967 to August 19 1969.I had great times visiting Olongapo,Singapore,Hong Kong,Yokosuka,
Sasebo,Nagasaki,Hawaii,Grande Island.I remember crossing the equator April 9 1968 and being initiated thous becoming a Shellback!!!.I also recall the typhoon we went through in 1968 on are way to Japan it was the first time I almost became sea sick!I also recall the USS Pueblo being captured and the Tico was ordered into the Yellow Sea and we almost went to war over that incident.Then there was the EC121 Spy Plane Incident in which 21 men were killed after being shot down by the North Koreans another near war action.

I made 2 West-Pac Cruises 1968-1969 into the beloved Gulf Of Tonkin {Yankee Station}I remember when the Tico was on line for 47 consecutive days because the Bohnhome Richard's catapult went down and we had to cover for them.I believe up until then that was the record for being on the line the longest for a carrier.The heat,Humidity carrying black boxes through the hangar deck unloading bombs,Supplies,bomb fins etc.At the time It was rough but now when I look back on the time it was a great time and memory!!

Just attended the 45th Reunion in Las Vegas for the Tico it was our first one and I have to say it was out of this world! Being in the same room with so many that served on the same ship was very special and I hope to be able to attend many more before I transfer to the Fleet above. If you can make it please come along to Tampa you will not regret it!

Seeking VA compensation info for Legal Yeoman Robert Farhat family.  Presently suffering from Parkinson related disease in the Blue Water category.

Specifically interested in ship location during deployment, if onshore water was taken aboard, or it shipmates ever set foot in Vietnam, and water processing information  I am a concerned associate and not a paid attorney.

Any help or information could greatly assist his family in their time of need.  Thank you.
