I am retired and living in Florida. My memories of my days on the Sara are really good. Many good times and great men aboard.

my greatest regret is that I didn't stay in the Navy. I loved that ship and I couldn't have asked for a finer family than I had in R Division.

Went from EMFA to EM2 in #3 main machinery room and #7 SS generator and switchboard, also #2 Special Freq. aircraft cooling generator(1000v 400cycles) and #3 Emergency Diesel Gen. Worked on all early on and was in charge of all when I left and turned it over to Larry Mitchell EM3. Loved it!

The Sara was a mother to all who walked the decks, everyone that was aboard the ship seems to have great things to say about their experience. It saddens me to think of the Sara being scrapped,we as crew should pull for her to become a reef off the cost of Florida so we all know she is close to home, instead of becoming scrap. Wish I could some way protect her as she protected me during times of conflict. To those of you who served upon the beloved decks of the wondrous vessel I salute you! And to my lady of the sea, - USS Saratoga - My blood sweat and tears shall be with you forever!

Great old warship! She served America well for many years. Sad to see her go. Great crew, great times and some times I would like to forget (Ship yard).
