Comments: It is good to see someone finally start on the web,a Claud Jones site of her very own. I look back on those years aboard, and the saying,"it was the best of times and it was the worst of times", keeps coming back to me. The friends we made and the places we went, may never be equaled again in our lifetimes. Being a floating target off of Haiphong, taking on water in a typhoon off of Japan, seeing shipmates die while on board, were the bad times, but making such good friends among such a tight crew and visiting exotic ports and seeing the world, make up for most. Where were we homeported? Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, can you ask for anything more?
