Off to Vietnam we went in 1965. But first we backed the old girl clear across San Diego Bay and into the bottom. I've often laughed about how that ship shook when we passed the last sea buoy, and sped up to 2/3 speed ahead! The Starboard shaft had an almost 8 off-center bend in it. So, after a night or two in drydock in Longbeach, we finally set sail for Vietnam, and our Destroyer Squadron. Heck, they were so far ahead of us, that it made no difference at all that we stopped all along the way for Japanese glass fishing net floats. The Captain must have had a jillion of those things!
Anybody else who was there...my e-mail is: rbasq@hotmail.com

How can I forget USS Ingersoll DD-652. My best shipboard tour of duty was on the Ingersoll. Lots of fun memories from the time I came on board in 1966 at 32nd Naval Station, San Diego to the sad decommisioning day in 1970. Hope I can attend one of the reunion someday and rejoin the old crew.

James Leslie McCallister
Years Served:
This post is to let others who served with my dad on the USS Ingersoll, that he sadly passed away this morning at the age of 70. He was with his wife Jane and his daughter Lisa and son-n-law Tony at his bedside.

He is survived by his wife, Jane, sons Vergal and Kenny, daughter Lisa and numerous brothers and sisters at home in Holcomb, Missouri.

He was full of life and had a great sense of humor. He was so proud of serving on your ship and he was proud to be a Veteran. He will be buried in the new Veterans Cemetary in Missouri. Godspeed Pop.

Your loving daughter Lisa...
