Highbaugh, MaxSTG2 (SW)May 1988 – Apr 1990ASAlthough I agree with some of Mr. Battle's comments, I still have alot of fond memories of friends and good times. Sure she spent more yard time than sea time, but she had her day and I will always remember the friends I made.
Battle, ScottLTJGJun 1988 – Mar 1990R, A, DCASorry, fellas. I can't recall LAWRENCE with anything but disgust. That worn out POS should have been scrapped years before it was but for Reagan's 600-ship dream. The Navy should feel ashamed of itself for having put her to sea. "The PI
