Hello! I served on the Yellowstone in Deck dept. and eventually as Deck dept. yoeman. It's good to see we can post to maybe reaquaint with old friends we left behind.

I came back home and eventually wound up here in Chelsea, AL. I currently work for Alabama Power Co as an equipment operator. I mostly operate D-11 bulldozers moving coal around.

My wife and I enjoy traveling, and riding my H-D Ultra. Most of our traveling is done on the bike.

Hello, my father ( James Darren Peay) was on the USS Yellowstone AD-41 from the early 80's into the 90's. He was a Barber on the ship. I remember going on what was called the Tiger Cruise when i was 8yrs old by myself. They flew me out to Bermuda and I rode back to the states on the ship with my father. That was the longest i ever spent on the ship although i remember being on the ship several other times before and after that. My father passed away in 2002. I still remember his dream of us opening a family barber shop when ever he retired. His nickname on the ship was PeayDay(Pay Day). If anyone knew or remembers my father please drop me a line, he passed away soon as i was becoming a man, 1 year after i graduated high school. If anyone has old pics i would love to see them. I didnt want to follow my fathers foot steps and join the military, but ive found my self holding on to that dream. Although hes not here anymore, he's still guiding me and paving a way for me to be successfull! R.I.P. James Darren Peay
