    Comments: I served aboard Canberra on her final cruise 1968-69 as a SF3 in R-Div. It was the best and worst of my navy time. When I mentioned to my father, a navy vet from WWII, that I had experienced nearly 100 GQ's in one months time he exclaimed that he hadn't experienced half that many in all of the invasions he participated in.

    Comments: James Robert (JIM BOB)JOHNSON (1918-1987) I would dearly love to hear anything about his service. He was a First Lieutenant (USMC) possibly in charge of a 20MM battery. He left me a very well preserved "Blue Fleet" certificate with an embossed stamp.

    Comments: I served aboard the USS Canberra from September 1962 until July 1965 as a FTM3 in the 8th Division. I am interested in hearing from former shipmates, especially those in the Terrier Missile Divisions, 7th and 8th Divisions, or former Canberra officers. I am currently an IT consultant in suburban Minneapolis, MN.

    Comments: Thanks for keeping the memory of the USS Canberra alive. My dad, Chief Petty Officer Hugh Steele, was assigned to the Canberra from the time the keel was laid down until its first decommissioning in 1946. His memory is not good, but he still remembers his ship and shipmates. I'm thankful for the history and memorabilia I've been able to collect for him.
    I'm sure he'd be at your reunion if he could; he attended many and always enjoyed them.

    Comments: My Dad served on the Canberra & the Alabama in WWII. I remember as a kid the picture he had of the hole in the side of the ship with a man standing inside.
    He is gone now, but there are gaps in his past I am trying to link. Anyone who remembers John Berbes time there and would like to help me, or tell me, of those times would be awesome. Thank you all & God bless you for your patriotism & sacrifice.
