I was the Combat Information Center (CIC), Electronics Materials Control (EMC) and Intelligence Officer until the DD-694 was sold to the Greek Navy

Walter Ogden
Years Served: 1965 - 1968
Picked up the ship in the Boston Yards in 65 as a ICFN. Stayed aboard until May of '68. Left her as a IC2. Like Lt McCarthy I took her around the world and up thru the Ditch after a tour in Vietnam. Lots of memories, but I don't think I would want to do it again. Been trying to locate some of my old ship buddies like Sonarman Evans from Ind., Sonarman Seidel from Pa. and Fire Control tech Owen Kidd from Ohio. Any one with info on these guys please give me a shout. :)
