Came onboard just before the South American cruise. Initially was the Main Propulsion Officer, then became the Damage Control Officer, when Bill Hinks became Engineering Officer. Served under CDR P.T. Glennon, then CDR Largess. The Med cruise in 1957 took us into the Persian Gulf, where we sure needed air conditioning. Was transferred to the Schools Command, Newport when we were in the Boston Naval Shipyard.
