I Served with about 500 radiomen on the Annaboat, I remember some but need to be reminded of incidents to recall the person.  It has bee a few years.  First What division was he in, CR, CT etc.  I was in CT and was also part of the Marine Relief program.  Not much is known about it.  I think it was just a cover for my Captain to help out a Marine friend when they lost a Radioman.  Are you a brother?  What was his Rate?   I no longer have my books (Moved to many times).  I was from Simi Valley California.  Had a few friends on the ship that were from Ventura.  It is quite possible I knew him, but it has been a long time.  Give me some information or a picture of him from the Annaboat.

The reunions are all over the country.  Year before last was in Pa., the year before that was memphis, etc.  I had some ship time too; the Collett, dd730.

I was an RM. To my knowledge the CT's were all at the receiver site.  I had a major run-in with those guys, but thats a long story.

I do remember the hut, believe it or not I had a bar tab there.  I worked in circuit control from  '63 to end of '64.  I guess I was a little ahead of you.

Hi Smitty,

You can call me Jim. I was in the navy twice. First time, I was in a patrol squadron, VP-6. Our home base was NAS Barbers Pt. in Hawaii. We made deployments to Adak, AK , Naha Okinawa and NS Sangley Pt. Philippines. That was from July 1965 to December 1969. On my second enlistment, I was on the Forrestal from July 1971 to July 1973. It took me a while to decide what to do in life. I wound up in the Post Office for a career. I just retired 3 years ago. Sorry I rambled on quite a bit just now. Regards, Jim
