I was in the CZ from Nov 4 1964 thru Aug 25th 1967. I spit that time between Rodman and coco solo. Rode 26 Russian and cuban ships through the canal. Couple of friends that were down there with me are going back for the 2014 Carnival. My dad was through there last year and he said panama city has really changed.

The USS Claudjones DE1033 (My Third Ship) was homeported in Key West then in 1966 she was Homeport out of Pearl Harbor. I thought Key West was a Quaint little place. Years Later I took My family there and Boy did it change ! Street were now paved and it was very crowded

U.S.S. Frank Cable - Nov 1979 Sailing from Seattle (Pre-Com) to Charleston,SC
We caught some beautiful fish @ daybreak off the fantail.
The Shah of Iran was on an island close by dying from cancer and so we were locked and loaded for the whole run thru.
Awesome trip!
