Great sight. Was up till 5am reading all the comments and looking at pics. Cheeks hurt a bit from smiling so much as the mind remembers things long forgotten. Looking forward to being at the reunion in July. Would like to hear from anyone on board from 82-86.
Spoke with Pony Boy Hannon and Danny Amoroso a few years back. Both still kicking. Just heard From Jimmy DeLuca today.
Looking for Riquelme(his email listed came back unknown), Romans, Hogan, Bowen, Bright, Williams, Kurbyan etc.
Anyone from the Wandering Spokes.
And yes Jay... I still remember being in the forward berth rubbing the sleep out of my eyes and saying "did he just say what I thought he said?"

I remember being one of many sitting on the main deck during the fire that took the four lives. At the time, we knew little of what our brave damage control crew was doing and how close the fire actually was to the ammo locker.

I also remember visiting a Jewish Synagogue with Ltjg. Benaroya (?sp) and having our picture taken and sent to our local papers.

I was just surfing and I came across your website. I spent much of 1960 on board Coral Sea (CVA 43)at PSNS in Bremerton, WA Across the pier were King and Coontz under going final consturction and commissioning. I was new to the navy then and watching the progress on these marvelous ships was a daily pleasure. I would point out though that I believe you history portion is in error as these ships when first built had two not one 5/54 mounts. Mount 2 was removed in later years to add the ASROC System.

Warm regards

So many things I could write, but reading the guestbook beforehand, the history is well-noted...so here's something that was unique to my experience:

I found a Big Jugs mag with pics upon glossy pics of big jugs slathered in "male proteins" stuffed in CDR Moreland's rack when I was cleaning up as a mess crank. I was shocked AND appalled at first, but took a break to leaf through it cover to cover.

Fond fond memories. Went through 'last call' at age 34 and ALMOST re-elisted. Took the OCS test and passed. Seeing navy ships make me cry now....which is what precipitated my re-enlistment crisis. I toured a frigate here in Boston and got all sentimental.

When we hit the Charlestown, I was in CIC and a new recruit said "Brace for what?" on the sound-powered phones. I couldn't stop laughing.

The King was special to me because it was my very first ship, very first time being greater than 4 hours from Valdosta, GA. I just remember the sonar guys molding me into a fine young sailor. Although there were many different personalities, they all had good hearts. Frump, Barry, Danny, Guy and the rest of the crew--Thanks.
