Reported as RMC at PreCom, Newport, RI and left in January 77 as RMCM.  Great crew - one of the best tours and sadly my last at sea.

I also served aboard the Happy Cappy from 1980 to 1984 and remember you both! I did my 4 and opted to move into civilian life and regret it to this day! I had so many good times and life experiences aboard the Capo and as a US serviceman. thanks Don for starting this command! You always bled Navy! Cheers!

I was an RM3 who served aboard the Capodanno from Jun 82 - Sep 85. Had great times and made lifetime friends. I sure miss those times!
