Comments: Fresh out of 'A' school,I left the taxi one foggy rainy night and asked "Where is the Norris?He pointed to a Mast sticking out of a pit.The next 6 mos. in dry dock for FRAM-II,& the following years changed my life.For whatever reason,I was assigned 'mess cook' duty for the Chief's; make some beds, wash some clothes, scramble some eggs,cook steaks; I had open gangway liberty every night! I stood extra duty watches so other guys could hit the beach.I was assigned Throttle Man/starboard shaft.If it moved, I moved it;Sea & Anchor details;Full Pwr.runs;Hi-Lines for Food, Fuel oil;Emerg. Drills.Great Med. Liberty ports;(Feb.-Jul '63)1st US warship since WW-II to visit Cobh,Ireland.People came out in buses, dances,home dinners, etc.;kissed the Blarney Stone;Rome Italy, Suez Canal, Nova Scotia, Italian Rivera,Egypt,Greece to name a few.Then came DEFCON-II and 13 days of the Cuban Missile Crisis.How to train for WW-III under full power in a few days?Anyway, we managed to escorte to ALAPAYEVSK back to Soviet waters.So many great shipmates From Lt.Jg Keyes, Chief Mayo, MM/1st Bill Roth,Berry-Chopak-Morgan-Kenyon-Freeborn & my liberty buddy Ken Adomat (automatic).I recall hitch-hiking from Newport to Boston in Winter & getting 'pelted' by 'drive-buys' throwing balloons filled w/shaving creme. I got a great Civilian Job after; Electrical Power Generating Station-(Control Room Operator). Hindsight says I should have re-enlisted for 4 or more!!

Comments: Went to jet engine mechanic school and was shocked to get orders to a Destroyer. Thanks Navy, you did me a big favor. Shellback, been around the World, Viet Nam, 30 countries, watched Polaris shots from a short distance away. They didn't know where to put an airdale for my watch assignment, so they put me on the bridge and that was really neat, front row seat to everything, then in Viet Nam they put me in mount 52 and I was powder man.
