I reported aboard in 1972 in La Maddalena Italy. Started out in 1st Div deck force, and in 1973 went to the signal bridge as an SM striker..I was transferred from the ship while she was in NORVA in 1977 as an SM-2....I can still close my eyes and walk all over the old girl in my mind...Who would ever think ya could miss a hunk of metal...

Came aboard in Sept 1971 and served there for 5 years. Reenlisted while on board. Made the 5.5 moth trip to La Maddelena, Italy when we opened the base there.
