I've only been to 2 reunions but I've never been able to find anyone that was on board or heard of the Mighty T sinking at the pier tied up at Alameda, I mean we were sitting on the bottom, was towed across the bay to Hunters Point. It was rumored we were going to Australia until this happened.
If you're interested email me and I'll tell you the rest of the story.

Went on to fly 2nd Mech on a P-3 in VP-40 for 1968 & 1969. Diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006. Recently learned that Lymphoma is a "Blue Water presumptive disease" for filing with VA for disability if stationed near Viet Nam. However, I also qualified under "boots on the ground" while in VP-40 as we flew out of Cam Rahn Bay some. Now waiting on the VA's response. If you have had cancer or heart disease due to Agent Orange, file for your well-deserved benefits.

Netflix just released a new 3 part series titled "Five Came Back".
It's the story of five Hollywood movie directors and what they did in filming in WWII.
I watched episode 3 today, which is the last of the series. In the 28th minute of this episode they show the Kamikaze
hitting the Ticonderoga and they mention our ships name. Have never seen this footage before. Thought this would be of interest to all.

My Father-in-Law,Robert Eugene Lewis,served on board the Ticonderoga during WW II. I have already written about him and you now have his history on record.
I write today because of a recent book I just finished: "Bringing The Thunder",by Gordon Bennet Robertson,Jr. He flew 35 B-29 bombing missions right thru the end of the war against Japan. In fact,he flew on the last nite before the surrender announcement of August 15th,1945.
In his book he tells a very funny story that ALMOST cost a B-29 crew a court martial. On a return leg from Japan, a B-29 crew made a low,feigned,landing pass,with gear and flaps,against the Ticonderoga ( late spring/early summer 1945).The flight crew knew it was a joke but the ship did not. All kinds of lites and wave-offs preceded the "go-around".
Much was made about it at the bomber base. However,the line crews never heard what the Ticonderoga commanders or crew had to say.
Any veterans from that era remember any of the details ?
Just thought you might enjoy this.
Thanks for your time,

Come to think of it I haven't seen any posts or had contact with Jess in quite a while either. That is odd because he was fairly regular on here. There's just an occasional post from other guys in Supply; Sherwin Greenberg from S-6 wrote a post on Page 2, but nothing from the S-1 crew recently. Geez I hope he's OK; getting emails bounced back to you is not a good sign. He's the kind of guy who'd let friends know if he had a new address, he liked to stay in touch even if just once in awhile.
Maybe one of the other guys will read this and update us if they know any more. Sorry I can't be of more help.
