Hello John, your site looks great and you've found and posted so much interesting information! And now you've even restored the content from Earl Adams original tags-21.info site. Brings back memories! Thanks so much! I'll let my old Navy buddies know!

ET2 (Nav Aids; Loran, NavSat) on the Bowditch for two one year tours. I joined the ship in Bermuda in the spring of 1980 and left in the spring of 1982. By the time I transferred, I was working as the Navigation Center Supervisor.

Posted a unit photo from Jan 1973. Interesting times nearly 50 years ago- Latitude 13 bar in Guam- Trying out the SASS over the Marianas trench- and the cruising around the volcano that was emerging from the Pacific

Comment:

Keith's excellent crew photo is located in the Michelson Crew Portraits.

Here is a photo of an impromptu beer party in a Michelson stateroom while the ship was in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in early 1964. Two of those pictured were temporarily with OCDET 3 while awaiting arrival of USNS Dutton in the yard.

I still have my Ships Cup and Patch.
As years go past the memories have never been forgotten, nor
my shipmates and others onboard. The unique locations in port was an adventure in geography and cultures.
