I was aboard for the Cuban Missile Blockade and the Med Cruise. Missed movement when the Fiske left Mayport for the Blockade and was flown out to the Enterprise for high-line transfer. I had a good time and of the four destroyers I served on, it was the best, not the newest.

Looking back on my time on board the Fiske, I wish I was more mature and had valued my experience more at that time.  It was only for a short time but the memories will always stay with me: Puerto Rico, the African cruise, the "Six Day War" and general quarters,  Esst Coast of Africa, Persian Gulf, becomming a Shellback, escorting the Forestall back to the states, and the hurricane.  I am proud I made RD3 just before leaving the Fiske and proud to be a "Tin Can Sailor".

I have fond memories of my time onboard the Fiske.  I still keep my shellback card in my wallet.  As I recall, we were always underway.  We made a middle east cruise in '73 and were a few days steaming from Vietnam when the crease fire was declared.  I think it was in '72 when we were involved in a collision with the sub USS Clagmore.  I believe it made the national news.  I recently retired with 37 years of service from the Mass Bay Tranportation Authority as a Bus Operations Instructor.

I remember my first morning aboard the Fiske.  I had the bottom bunk just above the lockers.  At the first stroke of reveille this lunatic ET named Schmeiske jumped from the top rack and started trying to open his locker and berating all who would not get up in time (me).  We became good friends and had a lot of good times together.

I came on board the ship by helicopter from the "Big E" during the Cuban Crisis as an 18 year old kid.  I mostly remember the Med cruise and ports of call in the Caribbean.  The Sonar Gang was one of the best bunch of guys one could be stationed with, as well as the RM's.  I got out after my first enlistment and waited 14 years to re-enlist and then finished as a Storekeeper.  My fondest Navy memories are still of my time on the Fiske.

I have been married to the same girl for over 42 years and life has been good with much of the Navy travel still in my blood since we have lived coast-to-coast and some places in between.

We do plan to get to a Reunion again soon.

I came on board in December 1956 while the Fiske was in the Boston shipyard.  My first cruise was a Gitmo Bay shakedown followed by a Midshipman cruise to the Med.  In the fall of 1956 we were on a NATO cruise to the North Atlantic.  I left the Fiske in November of 1957 to attend school in Key West.  On my return trip to the ship I wrecked my motorcycle and ended up in an Army hospital in North Carolina.  When I was released from the hospital I was reassigned to a Helicopter squadron, HS9, in Quonset Point, RI.  I was discharged as an SO1 and entered college, graduating with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and spent the majority of my career with IBM.

Some of the people I remember in the Sonar gang were Dick Jurgens, Weymon Snell, Chuck Amberger, Bill Webb, Bailey, and our division officer, Jim Tullis.  Some of the spelling of names may be incorrect: my apologies. One of the memorable times with the Fiske was the time we traded cigarettes for a day long cab ride in Naples.  We went to Pompei and Sorrento as well as numerous stops in Naples for the sum of $8.00.  I have many fine memories of the USS Fiske and the crew.

Came aboard from the R.K. Huntington decommissioning.  Enjoyed the 1974 Med cruise.  Hated spray painting the ship's office robin's egg blue.  Discharged from the Fiske after my two-year mandatory service (draft) was up.  Realized I missed the life and signed back up until retirement.

I served on board the Fiske from '74-'76. I was assigned to R-Div, A-Gang. I made a Med cruise in '74, the trip to Halifax, Portland, and those trips to Eaele to load ammo.
