Comments:
I haven't been back to check on the crew in a long time. Sad to see how many mates have passed away. I have alot of good memories (and some not so good) but that's life. Stopped in to visit Fred Dolan & family then I got married and started a family of my own. Washington, PA. was a nice place to visit but for one reason or another I never made it back there. If there are any shipmates or family or any one who wants to get in touch with me use my email, I will answer you,for now as an old shipmate used to say" SMOOTH SAILING"

We docked beside her numerous time in 68 and 69 at pier Q and P and R at Charleston. I was a Quartermaster on the USS Soley DD 707. Left active duty shortly after Soley running aground in Ft Lauderdale, FL. I got a Bronze ship seal plaque yesterday and brought old memories back.
