Thank you for this window to these ships, and the men and women aboard them. My uncle, David Gross, was aboard as a Photographer, and it has been wonderful to research his photos and those around him, tracing their journeys. If possible, please keep this epic website going. Thank you all for compiling all these stories for those of us who are lucky enough to witness through all of their eyes.

I was the Radioman from NCS Londonderry who encrypted messages to the Bowditch and Dutton from 1970-1973, via morse code broadcast. Would love to communicate with anyone from that time period who have remembrances. Only now seeing what your ships actually looked like.

I could not believe it when I heard the ship was sunk in Rio shortly after I left her. Many happy memories. RIP

Did not know Earl personally, but do fondly remember my year on Dutton and the great Navy people I served with there. Live in New Hampshire and would love to meet with anyone.

BTW the story about the truck and hamburgers in Norfolk is really true, I was standing there.

I just found out that Earl had died. I'm very sorry to hear about that. He and I had corresponded about four years ago, and I had promised to send him some photos when I got around to to sorting through my voluminous photo collection. I just sent a photo and key of 1960 Ocdet 1 sailors, before I realized he had died. So, to whom should I send the photos now? And, thanks so much for rescuing the site!

Earl's TAGS site is back on-line at the original URL - Domain name:

It went on-line yesterday in the late afternoon. Thank you all for bearing with us while we worked to make it happen and for your support and encouragement during the time it was down.

If you know of anyone that served on the T-AGS in any capacity, please let them know the site is up and running as Earl intended.

Thank you all,
