Did you WWII guys know that we have a USS Trathen Association? Reunions, newsletters, ballcaps, etc.
I've met a lot of your shipmates at reunions. Probably the greatest of them was your exec, the late Andy Richards.

Hard to believe that was almost 50 years ago. Part of the good old days.

I was on the TRATHEN when she was decommissioned. I was then sent to the GALVESTON to finish my Navy service.
