Shipmates were great the cruise was good until one of the vaps went out. I'm glad I'm a shellback now but I hated the cold with a passion. I would sleep in the hanger just so I didn't have to go outside to go below decks.  Just thinking about it now sends shivers through me.

I hated cold weather when I was a kid and it is even worse now. Besides, I had just spent a couple of years stationed in Hawaii and was spoiled. I'm glad you had a good cruise though.

Richard, I noticed that you got to Great Lakes in November of 1958, the same month I arrived there!  I was in Class 496 and started on November 4th. How about you?
