Comments:

Went on USS Camden's first tour off the coast of Vietnam. Lots of replenishments, day and night. Had a major accident during replenishment of the Aircraft Carrier USS Canberra. It diverted off course, connected replenishment hoses between ships were stripped, 2 planes from Canberra fell over on the Camden, a 3rd plane fell into ocean, JP5 oil was spilled on deck, don't know for sure whether man overboard alert was on. We returned back to Subic Bay with 2 planes onboard. I got into an accident, receiving an concussion, while in port at Subic Bay. Spent 2 weeks in the hospital at Clark Air Force Base for evaluation before returning back to the Camden. My rate then was an ETN 3rd Class. Martha Raye, a guest celebrity, once visited our ship off the shore of Vietnam. So also did Admiral Moorer, the Chief of Naval Operations and the brother of Captain Joe Moorer, commanding officer of the USS Camden.

As a YN3 in the Ships Office we spent a few months tied up in Norfolk, and took a few short sea tours. One for Cuban picket duty and another to Earl N.J. to pick up munitions. When we were ordered to Newport News dry dock we lost most of the crew to other assignments. When the engines were finally repaired we did a shakedown to Guantanamo, Where we were privileged to see the USS Nitro almost take out a pier coming back to port. I have always wondered what happened to the Officer Commanding the ship that day. They don't shoot them do they? :-) My time on the Shasta was great, often wonder what happened to all of my shipmates. I transfered off a few days before the Shasta was deployed to the Mediterranean, my understanding is that she broke down at sea, was towed back to dry dock and soon after scrapped. I'm now 70 and living a happy life in Rhode Island, Retired for the last 23 years. Life is good.

I'm not a US sailor but All the men on my fathers' side of the family were Sailors right back to the old "Tall Ships" days. I've heard many of their stories and seen many of their mementos. I have even been taught the art of Scrimshaw.
