Comments:

Yellowstone was my first ship out of DC school. I was assigned to the carpenter shop and learned all so much about boat repair! It was a great learning experience with some really great guys! During our 1967 Med cruise while in Malta, I met my future and present bride in Valletta! I have always wondered if the captains boat was ever completely repaired, prior to my transfer we had stripped the plywood hull off. I made E-5 in April, 1968 and was promptly transferred in1968 in July to the Berkeley DDG15 Long Beach. Loved every minute of my sea time!

Completing on behalf of my dad. Would love to get photos of him from his time in the Navy. All his photos were lost several years ago.

Comments:

Enjoyed my time aboard the Yellowstone. Got to see and visit many ports on the Mediterranean. Tried to keep in touch with shipmates. Was successful in many cases. Should have shipped over but leaving my friends was not setting well at the time. If you want a carrear(?) in the military you can't let close relationships stay too close. Except maybe in combat. Thank you for letting me rattle on.

I was medivac'd from HMCS SAGUENAY during an Eastlant exercise in the late 70s for a root canal. I couldn't thank the medical staff and crew enough for the care and hospitality.

oh, to do it all over again, I would have shipped over and put in 20 ... best job aboard Old Faithful, Chaplain Joseph Ryan's Yeoman, worked the Ship's Library and I&E Office and .... never slept on the racks below decks .... I slept on the couch in the Library and had my own private head ... nobody aboard knew ! Enjoy the Med Cruise, Norfolk, England and Scotland
