I have been in touch with Red Taisey over the last few years. Red was a MM2 and we did a lot of liberty together along with Paul Phillippe (Who unfortunately passed away in New Jersey a number of years ago.) Red is in the hospital in Syracuse, NY having a full knee operation. He said if this one turns out good, he is going to have the other one fixed. Being Catholic, he blames the problems with his knees from praying for all the people he knew in the Navy.

I am retired and living in South Carolina. Spent 45 years working as a contract electronics engineer on government and military programs.

Would really like to hear from the ship mates I knew on the Fred T..
