    Comments: My father, Gerald B. Green BMCM (E-9), served on the CAG-2 during the Korean/Vietnam tours. I also recall that he was part of the 1967 Coral Sea tour to Australia. I don't know which division he was in (possible Div. 3), but would like to hear from crew members that knew him...I would like to transcribe some stories about him for my daughters/grandchildren. Thank you for your wonderful web site...great photos!!

    Comments: I enjoyed reading the history of the USS Canberra. I am interested in finding some information about one of the crew members that was on board when the Canberra was commissioned in Boston in 1943. He was also on board when she got torpedoed. After that I don't know what happened to him. His name is Ernest Suder. Any information would be appreciated. Thank You S. West

    Comments: Thanks for the pictures, brings back memories. I was a musician fresh out of Music school when my first assignment was with COMCRUDESFLOT12 Band under Admiral Pinney stationed on the U.S.S. Canberra. My first port of call was the Cuban missile crisis when the shore patrol pulled everyone off the streets of Norfolk and by 4 PM that day the streets of Norfolk were empty and I had started my naval career-four years as short as it was. I remember the Canberra as a first class modern warship and indeed we were a proud crew. Again thanks for the pictures and memories. Brook Moorhouse MUSN/U.S. Navy 1961-62
