  • Shipmates Posted on April 1, 2010 04:23 pm Name: Sybil Fulk
    Location: Klamath Falls, Or.

    Comments: I am still searching for shipmates of my late husband, Ralph Joseph Fulk. Ralph was from Bayard, W.Va. and served in total 6 years, from 1959-65. He had told me that he took the first world cruise on board the Canberra.
    Then was in the reserves until the Vietnam War started, when he was called back in.
    His records are just not complete. They do not mention anything about Vietnam, and yet I know he was there. He also told me that he went ashore, and added the stories of what happened when he did. I don't even know if the ship was close enough or docked to the shores of Vietnam.
    I remember him mentioning working in the 5th division, and he also spoke often of being a gunners mate.
    I know there are men left that not only remember him, but served by his side, and it is imperative that I find you.

    Thanks so much and thanks for serving your country!
