USS Plumas County LST-1083

USS Plumas County (LST-1083) was an LST-542-class tank landing ship in the United States Navy. Unlike many of her class, which received only numbers and were disposed of after World War II, she survived long enough to be named. On 1 July 1955, all LSTs still in commission were named for US counties or parishes; LST-1083 was given the name Plumas County, after Plumas County, California.See More

Med Cruise of 1963

I went aboard with VA-35 in 1963 just prior to the '63 Med cruise.  While in the Med, we had a flight spotted on the fantail for launch at night and one of the recovering planes came in and landed all amoungst them-Heck of a fire on the flight deck.  We pushed many aircraft overboard after the fire was doused.  Also, back then we had another name other than Super Sara.See More
