    Comments: I served from July 1965 to Oct 1966 in the Engineering Log Room under LCDR L.R. Craig. Kept records for A,B,R,M & E divisions. I was transfered to COMCRUDESPAC until 1968. I still stay in touch with a few of the guys. I hope all of you are doing well. If you remember me send an email. If you don't that's okay too, send one anyway.

    Comments: I adjusted your 8"guns on targets located in the DMZ in Vietnam. Although an army artillery aerial observer (call sign Sundowner Yankee), we got the mission after the 3rd Marine Div was pulled out of nothern I corps.Your radio communicator had fun with me by immitating an Aussie accent and making me believe you were an Aussie ship. I then made a fool of myself as only a young Lt can do. I saw your hat on one of your mates here in Arizona and just had to say hello.
    Go Navy!

    Comments: MM2 Vincent J. Martinez, Jr. was in one of the engine rooms the day of the torpedo attack in 1944. He was lucky enough to make it out. He always felt guilty about that. Vince passed away in 2002 and I, his Son-in-law, just located this site and wish to post his passing. I also am a Navy vet (QM3 on USS Maddox DD731 ('69-'70). Vince had copies of two radio message requests from the torpedo attack, please e-mail me if you would like me to send copies your site. Thank you.
