During my almost 2 years aboard Fiske, as a 17 year old very young man, I was able to see things and visit exotic places that most people never get to see in a lifetime.  On the way back from Vietnam, one of my shipmates, under the influence of drugs, maliciously cut my throat which necessitated a transfer to US Naval Station Newport upon return.  In March 68 I was transferred to the USS Tattnall (DDG19) in Charleston, SC where I received the cherished "early out" to go to college under the GI Bill.  Have been having a pretty good life ever since.  I would like to say hello to all of my former shipmates and thank them for so many experiences of a lifetime!

Swam back to the ship from San Remo, Italy after being a bit late for the liberty boat.  Swam around the ship from the wharf at Valencia to avoid the quarterdeck watch, after being a bit late returning from liberty.  Swam back to the wrong ship at another place, after being a bit late returning from liberty.  Dove back in and swam to the Fiske.  Left the Navy after one tour;  I could never have had as good a time or done as prestigious work as in the first four years, nor could I have met better, more interesting shipmates.

Went on the Mid-East Cruise. Was on board when we hit the sub. Ran aground with: Smitty, Picker, Sorrenson, Natiliccio, Ginn, Carrington: all First Div. Lot of Caribbean and Gitmo cruises. Oh, I forgot: Mark Schutt. I got hurt June 15, 1973 in Recefe, Brazil and the ship left me there with no passport, money, or the ability to speak the language. What a challenge. Be glad to hear from 1st Div.

Never forget my last two cruises.  Having a sub surface under you has got to be one for the books.  Riding out a bad storm while only able to do 5 knots because we had to stay with a crippled sister was also unforgettable.  Fun times we had screwing with the midshipmen on a training cruise.

I swapped from the USS Cecil (DD835), after the Nam tour, onto the Fiske for the Mid-East tour, with a guy named Belton, SN. Made many good friends on the Fiske. Just can't remember who most of them are. I was in 1st Div. I hung around with a lot of friends from many divisions. I remember Hope, Vazzina, Tillory, the guys from the Signal Bridge (Radio, TV, Dinner). I was always in trouble with the Brass. They claimed I had my wife sleep on board one night. Now I'm credited with starting the co-ed Navy.
