I am now, and have been for some time, trying to locate two shipmates. One is
Michael J.Luh(?))man, who, when I last saw him, was a ML-2 (maybe 3) on the Jason (AR-8). He later became a diver, and, with Dick Denbow, MLC, was only one of two Molder-Divers in the fleet. I remember that he was orignally from Lusk Wyoming.
The other guy that I'm looking for is Jack Jorgenson, SF-1, who was on the Holland (AS-32) with me in Rota Spain , which would have been in 63 or 64. Jack left the Navy, for whatever reason, as SF-1 (sheetmetal) and I assume that he went back to Utah. I can't remember his home town.
If anybody knows ANYTHING about either one of these guys, please give me a shout. Tnanks.

I know what you mean Paul. After I retired in 73, I tried to follow the foundry trade, but the small shops were dissapearing faster than Oreo cookies at a kids party, so I went into the maintenance side of it. Worked at a couple of small aircraft foundries, then went to GE in Louisville as general maintenance, Was foreman in a couple of big foundries, then wound up in the Postal Service. I finally retired at 62 on SS, and aside from a few on/off jobs, I've not done much since.
Paul - if you know how to get ahold of Roy Calvin, please let me know. I had tought that that ornery little bastard had gone "under", and if he hasn't, I'd sure like to talk to him. He worked for me as MLFN, and my ex-wife and daughter simply adore his skinny ass. He used to babysit my daughter, and even at 50, she thinks he hung the moon ! Take care.

Thanks for adding me to your friend list Dan. Only been in this sight little over two weeks. I am still trying to figure out how I stubbled into it. Been productive in finding two shipmates from my days on the Markab AR-23. I've been to two ships reunions, but most of those guys go back to Korea and WW2. But still have a good time talking with them. I was a PM and still am. Have until this summer when I believe I will finally retire about 45 years in trade. I've seen it go from the ship style of building Patts, into years of blue print and sketches, to computer modeling and developing tool path into cnc. I made the switch about 22 years ago to computers and cnc and was very hestitant whether it would develop that direction. BUt it sure has and the trade is definitely made that final corner. No going back now. It is better but I will be the first to admit that I would love to just get a blue print once in awhile and build by hand. On a rare occasion it has happened, but almost unheard of. But the Navy gave me my trade and for that I am grateful. It was a wild time and a good time of maturing for me as a young man. I wouldn't trade that part of my life for anything. Paul
