1977-79 AO2 Fox Division in charge of Armory which was the best duty on the USS Tripoli. Switched to Mobile Inshore Undersea Warfare Unit as an Operator. Kept in touch with C/O Alfred Smith, X/O Paul Barnes, LCDR's Wayne Fischer, Pat Sena, Jake Anthony, GMG2 Gary Boeglin, FTM2 Bernie Miller, AOAN Ulysses Austin, GMG3 Raymond Zaharevitz (Ret. EOD Chief), SN Eric Amundson, GMG1 Keno Nawrocki and several other shipmates. Switched over to U.S. Air Force and left as a Captain. My favorite assignment was on the USS Tripoli. The ship was recently sold for scrap last year and is currently located in Texas.

@Howard: It would be hard to forget me, particularly if one was needing the services of the swab in my right hand after a port visit! :-)

Tripoli was my first command out of boot from 1972-75. Non designated airman assigned to AIMD. The tilting T as we called her was a good assignment and one with a lot of memories.
