Hi shipmates, just a quick picture taken from our Pre-Com booklet we were 
issued in Newport, 1962.
The cover of the book has this great shot, probably the earliest one in 
water!  Obviously taken at West Wego, or Avondale (they may both be the 
same?).  Lets hear from anyone that went to the ship in Louisiana and 
brought her around to Charleston.  Tell us who else you remember was on 
board or the trip. We know that Capt. Alexander and LT. Robert Rustad 
were two of the officers, and that Arlen "Alex" Alexander ET3 was one of 
the enlisted persons. Who were the rest? 
Let's hear from you, help us record these memories before we all forget!
Fair Winds, Semper Fi,
Mitch
