I was there and wish I wasn't a loner back then. Anyway, we all developed our respect for the Boiler Room crew one night.

I have added another field to the Memorial and that is the years aboard the deceased shipmate served.

I have also added over twenty more names.


If anyone has any corrections please contact me.

I am a retired Electricians Mate who served aboard the USS King from November 1975 until November 1979.  It was a wonderful tour, of course my last and I expected it to be my worst tour of my career.  Due to the chaotic things that were happening on the USS King when it left New Orleans and first arrived in Norfolk Va.  It turned out to be a wonderful "SHIP" and the best tour of duty I ever had, very Much due to the personnel I served with. Jack Ordman HT1-R Breau MMC-Tony Sterbling EM2-CWO Kurek-JJ Langley IC2-Kevin Olsen LT and Weldon Cabaniss IC3 to name a few. Everyone knew me a Chief Blum (EMC). Ya'll be good and I will see you in Las Vegas.

Hello to all who were stationed on board the USS King DDG41 when it left New Orleans LA in 1975 and made its way to the Portmouth Navy Yard. I agree with the post that was made in August 2007, It was really a very gruling time for all hands but as you said in the end we all came through with flying colors.  All hands were very proud of there accomplishments and we continued to excel in everything we did for years to come thanks to the great leadership of the senior Officers and senior enlisted on board. Thanks should go out to all hands on board at the recomissioning and thereafter.  It was a wonderful ride for many years to come.

Among the potpourri of topics in this week's On The Waterfront column is the story of a custom joinery project a local shipwright designed, built and is currently installing into a new 40 meter Westport mega yacht.
