Children of EX SAILORS. Please start your search on Google, Yahoo, or Bing. Type in the name of the ship that your father was on. (Do not forget the USS part). Most ships have a webpage, and reunions. Email the ship'swebmaster with your needs. Some of your father's friends might still attend these reunions.
Navy ships made cruises. Criuse books were made for the crew members to buy after the cruise. These old cruise books are offered today on ebay. Search ebay by typing in the name of the ship's you want information on. Another place to look is on the list of navy bases listed at www.classmate.com.
EX Navy Photographers. If you have pictures to share, please get a membership here on Pbase. Cost only 24 dollars a year, and well worth it.
Check out the new image of Newport, RI singer Jim McGrath's gallery. It was made at a friends going away party in the summer of 1962. I found video of him on U Tube in December, 2013 Jim was the folk singer at the old "Hunt Club" in 1962, located on a short pier off of Thames Street.
About me. I am an old guy these days, but I still looking forward to each new day, and what it might bring. I did not get rich in money, but I have a great family, with children and six grandchildren. No amount of money could ever replace them. I still still have unfinished projects on my bucket list.
please put "PBase Images" in the emails subject line, or it gets deleted.
