Yeah I know, airdale!!
I was a Gunners Mate on the USS Rainier (AOE-7) in the Constellation Battle Group. This was in 2001. She was the last conventional powered carrier in the Navy. We saw the carrier every 3 days for refuel. And sometimes more because her water makers would always break and we would have to send her water for the crew.

I served from 98-2002 on the Rainier in Bremerton Washington.

Wow, lots of Bubble Heads here!

USS L. Mendel Rivers (SSN 686) Stationed at South Carolina when it was open

Shot my first M14 on the Rivers at an Oscar after a man overboard drill. I'll never forget it!

Actually the Kennedy CV-67 was the last conventional powered carrier for the Navy. I have never been in the Navy but have worked flight ops on the decks of the Enterprise, Eisenhower, George Washington, Truman, Stennis, Lincoln, Reagan, and the Bush. All great ships! I liked the food on the Truman the best!

I served three tours to the Nam on the USS Rainier AE-5 which was a WW2 era ammo ship as an Radioman 2nd Class Petty Officer (crypto) between 62-66. I attended KLB-47 crypto school at Mare Island Ca and RM code school at Treasure Island Ca.

We were there for the Tonkin Gulf Incident when the Maddox and Turner Joy were attacked by NVA patrol boats in early August 64 while on patrol in the Gulf of Tonkin.

The second attack on the Turner Joy never actually happened, but that supposed second attack was the reason Johnson asked Congress to pass the Tonkin Gulf Resolution, which caused the Vietnam War. The Vietnam War was caused by a miscue on our part.

A big thanks to everyone of you!!!

I never served but every time I get a chance I visit a ships museum.

A month ago I went aboard the USS Kidd, then last week I was in Norfolk and toured the Wisconsin, year ago I was Honored to board the Mighty MO and the USS Bowfin. A ways back I got to tour the USS North Carolina.

loved every single second. I often wonder who kept these vessels tip top.

It was each and every one of you.

THANK YOU!

We have Little Rock here in Buffalo, NY. Should you be in the area, she is well taken care of and has the destroyer USS The Sullivan's and a sub USS Croaker to keep her company.

We transited and/or operated off of these vessels, particularly the tin cans.
USS Edson "Three Guns No Waiting!"

I used to give tours on that ship when it was in NYC while I was a DEP'er back in 92'

WA Division (Sonar Gang) aboard Harold E. Holt FF-1074 '76-'80.

My final "Olympia Beer" cruise (WestPac '79) was quite memorable! (Yogi, Bubu, myself and a few others managed to relieve the ship's store of about 70 cases of Oly while underway.)
