Name: Frank Grochowski
Years Served: 1973
Your Rank: MR1
Comments: I served on her from Feb 73 until decommissioning for conversion to a DDG. Took her through the Panama Canal where we manned the rail in whites all the way through because "the eyes of the world were watching us" This was because we went through the canal at the same time as a British ship that had Prince Charles aboard. They were in shorts and we were in whites. We were originally supposed to take her to Portsmouth for decommissioning but politics got involved and they turned us around and sent us to some God forsaken shipyard in New Orleans. The place was so small they had to rent a crane to off load our gear. Heard later on that they screwed it up so bad that they ended up towing the ship out of there to finish the conversion elsewhere. Captain Anderson was the last CO. He was a hell of a good guy. I only spent ten months aboard her but it was a great ten months. Great ship, great crew.
