Onboard Gusboat from re-com in Bath Maine until Dec. 1981. My second ship and the best.

Highway to Hell?  Wow, we played the 'Wearling of the Green' when I was aboard.

My first ship out of Bootcamp/RM "A" School I was on it during it's final year. I can still remember the theme song "Highway to Hell"

Gus' boat was my first ship out of boot camp in 1970. She still holds a special place in my thoughts and heart. I served in her under probably my most favorite commanding officer, Cdr. Shaffer. He was (is) so down to earth and even though I was a lowly E-2/3, he treated everyone with respect but there was no question who was the CO.
