Comments: My grandfather, Lt. Cmdr. James L. Wilkerson (ret.), served in the Navy from 1932 - 1956. He served on (to name a few) the USS Saratoga, USS Lexington, USS Kearsarge, and the USS Missouri. He was on the Lex in May 1942 when she went down in the Coral Sea, and was one of the last guys off the ship. He spent several weeks with 20 other guys on one of the Tongan islands, awaiting resue. This finally came in the form of a pair of Dutch tramps, which "gave them a ride" to San Diego. I'm looking for any information on the two Dutch ships or anyone who served on the Lex at that time, especially a survivor of the stay on Tonga. Anyone with questions or answers (!) can email me directly at rlschuck@earthlink.net. My grandfather passed away in 1995.

Was wondering if you know of any source for these old calls? You have a great web page..Thanks.. Nope, never made Chief. Was asked to go back out on the Boxer in 45 on our way home, and was promised Chief in one year, , but wanted to get home. Of course I re-enlisted :)) Don't know how radioman could ever get in trouble, but I managed:) Even got a seven day liberty restriction for "holding a conversation and gambling in Officers Country, one nite at Okinawa campaign:) Seven of us got caught by Condition Zebra on our way to battle stations, so of course we did some talking:) But...we did not have any cards, and were too nervous anyhow to gamble, since the 5" guns, 40mm and 20mm guns were going off above us, and the squak box was always yelling, Bogies diving on the Task Force..Tried to tell the exec that but he took the word of the guy who put us on report...ah, my good old Navy day:) Would't trade them for a million dollars.

Comments: Kudo's Master Chief for the finest web site on the net. I have been to this site many times to search for old shipmates and remember...I qualified aboard USS Wahoo temdu because my boat the USS Trout SS566 was in the yards for overhaul. When I returned to port I received my "fish" aboard the Trout while she was in drydock in Philly.I decommissioned the Trout,then went to USS New York City SSN696(Plankowner),CNTECHTRA MILLINGTON TN,COMSUBGRU 16 Charleston, S.C.,James K. Polk SSBN645B,USS James Monroe SSBN622G, USS Francis Scott Key SSBN657G. Thanks to you and all the Chiefs for allowing me into your goatlocker,the coffee is always better here. YOU CAN TAKE THE BOY OUT OF SUBMARINES BUT YOU CAN'T TAKE SUBMARINES OUT OF THE BOY!

She's still a beautiful and graceful LADY to this day whenever she arrives in Ft Laud. It's too bad we never really appreciate those great days until there gone and we have lost touch with some very fine friends and people. GOOD LUCK TO ALL CURRENT AND FUTURE MEMBERS OF OUR USN!!

I have led a short career. First through the Nuclear Pipeline. I then Pre-Com'd the USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74), now Overhauling the USS Nimitz (CVN 68). I am the son of AMCS(AW) Thomas Hughes who served many nearly 15years as Chief and Senior Chief and many in the Squadrons may know of him. He was in VAQ 132 (scorpions), VA 145 (swordsmen), taught in Yuma AZ, forget all the rest. Believe me we did our share of moving. Lots of time in NAS Whidbey Island. Any way I plan to make E-7 this year and I am proud to soon join your ranks. My father is equally proud and plans to pin his first anchor on. Anyway nice to have said hello and HATS OFF!!

I am trying to find an old shipmate that was with me on the USS CONSTELLATION (CV-64) and USS INDEPENDENCE(CV-62) in 1989-1991. He served in VF-154(Black Knights), while I was part of ship's company.His name is JAMES D. FRANCISCO, and he is from Oregon. I believe he had planned on making the navy a career when I got out. He was scheduled to be sent to land duty in Hawaii sometime in 1991. His rate at the time was IS2.ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, IS2 Michael S. Garrett

Sadly the Iwo is no longer with us, but the memories of her (and the men who sailed on her) will live on.

Comments: Congratulations to all you Chiefs - I didn't make it although I enlisted in 1940 as AS ($21.00/Mo.) and progressed through S2, S1, SK3, SK2 & SK1. I had to turn down Warrant APC in 1943 when I passed the exams to become a fleet appointee to USNA as a Midshipman. I graduated from the Naval Academy in 1948 comfortably in the middle 220 of 420. I held the ranks of Ensign, Lt(jg),and LT and switched from regular to reserve in 1954 after completing all obligated duty. The Navy was in a severe cutback and literally begged many of us to make the switch. I made LCDR and CDR while in reserve mobilization units. I served on USS RAPIDAN, USS Raleigh, USS RANDOLPH, USS CONE, USS WISCONSIN, USS OKALOOSA, USS RATON, USS GAINARD and USS HAYNSWORTH while on active duty or as a Midshipman and enjoyed my Navy life very much. I am now 77 with severe ASBESTOSIS and on oxygen 7/24. My asbestos exposure came partially from asbestos insulation on those old WW2 ships and especially from the summer of 1941 demolition of old NTS NORVA buildings - I need affidavits from any of you that helped in this demolition and I will supply affidavits to any of you that so served and now have lung cancer. The VA Administrative side would like to write us off and will unless we raise cain to get the proper recognition. Write me at 3437 Chapel Lane, Hoover AL, 35226.

Comments: Ahoy Shipmates: Can it be that the old fossil burning carriers have given up their screws and rudders to have them put on the new nuke carriers? I heard this from an old USS Independence shipmate who was at her decomissioning. I've tried to get this info from the new nuke pukes but no one wants to write me back. Might be that this info is classified? I know the "hooks" have been stripped of the USS Forrestal and USS Saratoga, I've seen this for myself. I figure some one out there might be able to answer this question or at least point me in the right direction. I only want this infomation as it will keep the spirit of these old boats alive. No ofense to you guys who glow in the dark but I miss the smell of burning ship's diesel. The ships that were stripped were the USS Ranger, USS Midway and USS Independence the parts went to the USS Truman, and USS Reagan. I don't know this to be fact, it's all scuttlebutt at this point. Anybody out there have a hook in Newport News?
