Memories For This Unit

Best Friends
Phil Long
Paul Hassler

Best Moment
Promoted to IC2

   

Worst Moment
Transfer to Kitty Hawk after renting an apartment for the yard period. We had been joking amongst ourselves the entire trip back from Subic about the transfer happening. Fpur out of five of the shop PO's ended with a pink slip and free trip to Kitty Hawk.

Chain of Command
IC1 Trego

   

Other Memories
While catching up with "Connie" I was transferred from command to command starting from Travis AFB to Tachikawa AFB to Clark AFB. Rode a bus to Subic from Clark and not long after we left the base we were stopped by a half track blocking the road, so the bus driver handed a guy who entered the bus a carton of Salems and we continued on our merry way to Subic. Upon arrival at Subic I was assigned port and starboard duty (I was in the port section) and told we had base liberty only. Next day about 1500 we were sent down to the piers to catch USS Missenewa to ride to Constellation. We were led to the fantail told to choose a cot, stash our bags under the cot and liberty would expire next morning. Next morning we pulled out and headed you know where to catch "Connie". Rode the oiler for a few days then were transferred to Camden via highline. That was an experience, we got to haul on the lines until it was our turn to hop in the chair. I think the only one that ended up getting dunked was the chaplain. Once on Camden I was assigned a rack in the brig and instructed to keep things orderly while there. Next day we jumped into a chopper and flew to good ship Constellation. What a trip, but I remember it like it was yesterday.
