First time I ever flew, first time I ever traveled out of the US, first time I ever sailed on a ship, and only woman on board: October 1975 in St. John's, Newfoundland, to meet the Dutton. I was very nervous and I so proud when one of the Navy guys said, "How long have you been going to sea?" It wasn't until later that I must have appeared green as grass. Must have done something right. Rode ships for NAVO for 17 years.

I served on board with Chief Love ETC and HMC Doc Wichendahl ETRSN Larry Murrish 60-61, we were the Bendix G-15d maint. crew. Before or as I made ETR3 I was transferred to the Dutton. We had another ETC who was short and fat and always smiled. Pappy Foiles was an ET1 on board. Alexander Orr was ETNSN had been aboard in 1959-1961 at least. I do not remember others during that stay.
Dutton had John Casebolt ET1, ET1 Donald J. Bittner, ET2-1 Herbert J. Bevington Jr., John Regan ET1, Dad Doane ET1 died of heart failure at age 44, he was removed from the ship in BODO Norway. I worked on the Bendix and the Magnetometer. Captain T.J. Snik was MSTS master of the ship and the best Ship handler I have ever seen.
Bowditch 1964-5 Merrill Francis Stone ET2, David Gross was one of our photogs, During these years we had Capt. Blythe MSC.
1968-9 XO was Joseph Slobodny, SK1 William Henry Jones, PN1 Dale Harry Young, Bill Keenan was a MSC crew intermittantly, he was from Belfast and he would be onboard for short periods as MSC did not want local hires working the ship.
ET2 Larkin was one of my gang, HMC Doc Viterali, ET1-C Michael J. Emily

Since I made ETR3 and ET1 while onboard Ocean Det-Unit I went from e3-e7 on board.
We were very topheavy in the enlisted ratings in 1960 I think we had 6-7 Chiefs, in 1969 I was the only Chief, until Emily passed the test.

Chuck Stalnaker trainer me before he left the ship. I had a great time and loved the ports, shipyards periods and the whole crew. Still in touch with Ashburn. Any one heard from Buffy Coffelt?

Great stuff! The photos reminded me of several "adventures" in Yokosuka and Sasebo as well as Guam, the Philippines and Taiwan. I know I have photos from those days in the attic. Now I just have to climb up there and find them!
