I was looking for the story about the ," Fleet Fox ", running into 2 mines .
(Patrick Cherry) I think he was a Lt Cdr...possibly a Lt Jg (I'm still not sure of the ranks as I've only been a Navy wife for a little over a year.) Anyhow, I just wanted to say thank you..THANK YOU. Hiltonname: Marie (Collier) Stasykemail: [email protected]: Friday, May 24, 2002Time: AMhello, i'm searching for anyone who knew my father. I have a picture of the joe (my 1st ship) hanging next to a picture of the ramsey(my last ship). I completed my tour of duty and later went on to complete EOD training and met up with fellow shipmate John D Drennen, Big JD from Sonar Division.
Last I knew, he was stationed out on Eva Beach, Oahu Hawaii.
Then I see a couple of people who served on the ship when I did,71 thru 74! My " nick name " was , Rocky.( For obvious reasons).
Now , I can't type too good ,but I wanted to say I 'm on board , "again"!
I actually wanted to say thank you for serving in the USN. Any of the old Rm gang around, Jim Delaverson, Jerry fly?

One of my favorite memories of the Joe was getting into a fresh water fight in the galley and accidentally squirting the Cheng, got to wipe some sweat up down in the "bull pen".
