I received a call today from Jenny Shurina saying her husband John Shurina had passed away on Oct 22, 1916 of Pancreatic Cancer. I don't know the dates he was on the Strong, but she said he got out of the Navy in 1954.

Just found this site. I reported on board with the ship in dry dock at Charleston, S. C. where it had just come back from Nam. Did GTMO sea school summer of 69. Med Cruise in winter of 69-70 including two trips into the Black Sea. Agree with other comments about Barcelona. Back stateside in late May, 1970 and discharged 23June1970. Saw the name Henry Ford. Were you a GMG2? If you are, you were the next one discharged off that ship. I remember you being poed with me because I had a shorter time left to serve than you did. I should remember more names but the ones that come to mind are Maxie Pate GMGC and weapons officer Lt. Edwin Sewinski. To Connie Chewning, are you related to the family near Fredericksburg, Va?
