Comments:

Life on board the SEATTLE was as the Grateful Dead sang..."What a long strange trip it's been." A lot of great camaraderie, Good times, Bad times. I have done a lot of growing up since those days. Wish I knew then what I know now. What I miss the most were the great friends I made and life aboard a really hard working ship with a pretty tight knit crew.

After leaving the SEATTLE, I served at FCTCLANT Dam Neck Va. as an instructor at OS "A" school. After completion of Shore Duty at Dam Neck I reported aboard the USS Edward McDonnell (FF-1043), I served on board her until I had surgery and was then transferred to the USS Donald B. Beary (FF-1085) where I served from 1984 to 1986, I was aboard her during the Gulf of Sidra. In 1986 I once again served at FCTCLANT Dam Neck at OS "A" school, this time as LPO for Phase I (1st 6 weeks of a 12 week school). I was retired in 1988 with a full honorable under medical. I was an OS1 over 15 at the time.

Ship Story:

After a rough night out in Palma De Majorca, A BM3 in 2nd division berthing wakes up screaming and he says he can't move his legs and that he was paralyzed. They called the duty corpsman and upon arriving the Doc says let's take a look see. They pull down the covers and find that a couple of his buddies that put him in his rack, had placed both his legs in a sea bag and cinched it up and then covered him up. The poor bugger was convinced he had drunk himself into some form of paralysis.
