Hi John !!

I distinctly remember ALL of the Grant Sharp era.  He was NOT a great people person, but was a competent sailor. I remember when he brought back a Puerto Rican girlfriend, while we were in Port-au-Prince.    This is when we steamed from Haiti back to Rosie Roads.  She stayed either in his cabin or sunned herself out on the bridgewing--- in a Bikini !!!   

P.S.: I actually ran into Grant Sharp about ten years ago, at the Phoenix airport; and he hardly even said hello to me.  I guess that he was just TOO busy.    Well, WE gave him the Battle E and the Comm C, to mention just a few awards.  We also handled all of the DesRon stuff while they were embarked, which was often.   I believe that he made Rear Admiral before retiring. Take care.    :)
