|My Aunt Adeline served in the Navy in WWII
She kept EVERY piece of correspondence, Christmas Cards, books etc
Apparently she went on a tour of the USS Toledo in 1946
Check out the website to learn about this heavy cruiser of the Baltimore class
|When I was aboard the USS Bon Homme Richard we would have an occasional fly over
This is not very clear, but I think these might be Russkies checking us out
|On the flight deck
I didn’t know it at the time, but this is probably Da Nang harbor. According to a Wikipedia entry we anchored here to show the alleged pacification of the region. This was 1970 and there was nothing peaceful about what was going on over my shoulder.
|My locker only contained items I cared about, canisters of film, books and music cassettes.
One small corner was devoted to Navy Stuff like my uniform
Imagine how much more room I could have with a MP3 player and SD memory cards?
