  • World Tour Posted on February 9, 2008 08:21 pm Name: John Cignetti

    Comments: I was a member of the USS Canberra from 1960 thru Sept. 1961 at which time I was discharged from the Navy. Had a great time on this ship, especially the trip around the World as a People to People cruise. I was an Electrician's Mate 2nd Class (EM2). Maybe some of you remember me. While in Italy, I went on leave at Livorno and went home up in the mountains, while the ship proceeded to Rome for the 1960 Olympics. I rejoined the ship in Greece and while there Jane Mansfield came aboard ship with her husband and daughter. I think the daughter is now a star on television in the Law and Order series.
    Hello to all.
