So many great memories. Did a tour on the Bowditch as an ETN-3 (NavAids) before heading to Pearl to the USS Patrick Henry, SSBN 599B for 2 years then 5 months at NAVASTROGRU-C in Hawaii tracking NAVSAT and installing the first GPS system. Did 22 years at Northrop now at Intrepid Solutions. I owe the Navy everything career-wise. Had read about eLORAN supplementing GPS and wanted to find a picture of the WPN3. Found this great site! I found our XO (LT Gunderson) in DC but no one else.

Never served with you guys, never knew anyone who did. During my time on Guam, sent many, many encrypted Morse code messages to Michelson. All of us at the COMMSTA had top secret with broad need-to-know attachments (we did handle message traffic), but none of us could ever find out anything except we weren't to mention your name outside the message center. Enjoyed reading your site tremendously; another item off a 68-year old's bucket list! Thanks for doing this. Fair wind and following seas.

I'm looking for a Corpman named Max Fuentes, and a Lt JG. from Dallas Tx.,but the name escapes me? We had a great time aboard the ship in the North Atlantic. I spent one of the Best X-mas's in Edinborough Scotland , when we put together all the Cartoons for under privileged Children. I was a ETR-3

mar '69 - dec '72 would be great to get in touch with some of the guys. I thought it was great duty for single guy.

I happened across this site after reading that China stole and underwater drown from the Bowditch. I sailed on the Bowditch 76-78 as an ET. This was my first ship in the Navy and I had a blast, if you don't mind a lot of time at sea this was some of the best sea duty in the Navy.

It is interesting that the ship that had a "research drone" stolen by the Chinese this past week northwest of Subic was USNS Bowditch.

She looks a bit better than the old lady! But, not nearly as salty.
