Great time met great shipmates of whom I still talk to and hear from today. From there it was on to Long Beach via the Panama Canal. Manning the phones was great because you could hear all of the chatter about what we were destroying.
There are many great stories told here and also lots of messages from former crewman who are looking for shipmates.
Made CPO once I left the battleship at CINCPACFLT Staff at Pearl Harbor, HI. My uncle George Wytko served on the New Jersey during WW II. I have a copy of the ships War Log covering the period of Dec. Served on the USS New Jersey in #4 Fireroom as a BT (snipe) from 1983 through 1985. Rick was assigned to #3 Fireroom under Chief O'Briant and later Chief Olsen when O'Briant became his Senior Chief.
Enjoyed the historical significance of the battleship. Served under Chief Deskins and later Chief Bench (Puss), when Deskins became our Senior Chief. Traveled all around the world and great memories of Hawaii, the Philippines, Singapore, Thiland, Shellback Day and Panama.
My dad rode with us on the Tiger Cruise from San Francisco to Long Beach. Anybody still out there: Al Hall, Tom Chelius, Tom Fenske, Frank Rome, Butler, Slap!
