Years Served: Board member
I have severed on the board now going on 5 years. Last week I had the opportunity to play golf with Adm. L. Chambers and his wife. This was perhaps one of the most rewarding experiences for me as a board member.

Adm. Chambers is a fine man. A good golfer too.

I was a BM in 2nd Div. I caught the Midway in Alameda & Rode it to Japan. I got sick a few times after all those shots. But I'm fine now. I live on the north Oregon coast & have made the road trip to sunny San Diego four times. Last time was 4-30-2010 that was the 35th anniversary of Operation Ferquent Wind. It was really cool seeing the bravest man alive. Yes i'm talking about the guy that packed his wife & 5 kids in that little Bird Dog and landed safely on the Midway. THAT WAS A BALLSY MOVE!!!!! I got out as soon as we got back to Japan.

I really loved this boat and the Place she took me. I think about it from time to time while talking with the old Vietnam era sailors in my neighborhood. I really used to have fun back in those days.

Had the best time of my life serving with some truly awesome men while on board. Spent most of my time in the Weapons elevator shop, G-3 div. Capt. McGrail was the best CO a sailor cold have ever asked for. I still on occasion find myself watching for the Green Flash, lol. Any who, great serving with everyone, your the best.


Bill Ehmke
Years Served: 75-76
Just stumbled across this site and wanted to say that I have been trying to find a reason to visit the ship in San Diego. I'm hoping I can get a business trip in the area sometime this year. The best memory I have on the ship was the shellback initiation. I remember going to Singapore prior to the initiation and watching the Pollywog beauty contest afterwards. I also remember the captain wearing a hat after the "Royal Barber" had made a visit. Best time ever.
