Refling, DavidMSSN1975 – 1978SupplyGood times on this ship. I thought LST was the most versitile amphib in the Navy.
Bazemore, TomFTG2May 1975 – Jun 19773rdJust found this site...brings back some good memories. My first of two USN ships, and a career on ships and boats since. The Westpac '76-'77 was an eye opener for a country boy from NC! It will be good to catch up!
Barnett, JeffFIREMANJun 1, 1975 – Jun 1, 1978engineeringSure wish I wasn't so rebelious although I was a good sailor. I'm doing very well today and have a great job. I wish they would raise the age of enlistment because I would join in a second. I sure miss it and should have stayed in.
