Served aboard the USS
enjoyed the site.
Really brought back some memories...The Missy was a hell of a proud
sad to see her decaying into what she is now... :-( FWIW, on our 10th
anniversary, we went to Hawaii, and visited Pearl, among other places.
While we were there, we saw a tanker in the harbor, and it might have
the Kawishiwi, I'm not sure. This was in June of 1979. It almost
tears to my eyes. They wouldn't let us board the old ship, which kind
ticked me a little. But, that's the way it goes, I guess. Let me know
any other AO stuff you find, okay? I might have some pictures of the
stashed away somewhere. I served on her from 1962 until EAOS,
I made a Med cruise and a yard overhaul, as well as a GTMO cruise.
