    Comments: Served in OE Division early summer '58 through spring of '62. Made the World Cruise 1960 - awesome! My main job on the Can-Do was trying to keep the height finding radar set working. Would like to e-mail others who were in OE Division, or others in Operations Department.

    Comments: Has anyone heard anything about when or where this year's reunion will be? I was a plank owner when she was recommissioned in '56 and am interested in trying to make the next reunion if it's going to be somewhere in the South or East coast.

    Comments: Was going through some of my photos and found one with a Cruiser hull number 2. Could not figure who she was and finally came across your site. I have no idea where the photo was taken but it was taken from the USS Mount Mckinley AGC7. Would like to forward the photo to you if you will give me an E-mail address that I can attach it to. thanks, Don Burnette, CPO USN RETIRED

    Comments: Great site and my thanks for keeping our ship afloat at least in our memories. I served aboard 62/64 in OR Div. Was wondering why the Cuban Missile crisis wasn't mentioned in the history section. Thanks again.

    Comments: Served in E div. for the last two deployments 1967-69. Any other E div members from that period? I have a lot of memories. Freezing off of Korea for a month at the start of "TET" for one. Does anyone remember the powder charge explosion in the ready room two decks above the E div compartment?

We are trying to get about five of us together Curt Allen, Ben Akers, Ken Caves, and Rowland Keenan. We have finally located each other through the Canberra Reunion Assoc. We are trying to locate Bob Barton and Tom Leary could use some help. Thanks for all of the good work you guys do. I am getting back together with my old Buddies.
