Our Med-cruise in 1961 was historic- we took on lots of water in a heavy storm. Chain locker flooded.. we went thru the straits of Girbralter with no chains forward of the stanchions, life rafts torn away. Spent a couple months in the Red Sea with ComMedEastFor embarked. Visited Hodeida, Yemen delivering 100 man tents. The crown prince gave us 2 Brahma Bulls that were tied up to the depth charge racks!!
As we were heading back to the States, we got tasked to participate in the filming of "The Longest Day." We filmed the M.C. Fox firing her 5" guns in a simulated shore bombardment... great cruise...

My dad, Don Wilson, was very involved with you and the website until he passed in 2000.
My mom, Mary Wilson, had attended a couple reunions after he passed with myself and then one time my husband and I both took her to the one in Niagara Falls, NY.
I am sad but at peace to let everyone know that my mom passed away at 89 on 6/3/16 at my house with my husband and I in her sleep with no pain. I actually went to wake her up to get ready for daycare while I worked and when I called 911 they said she had already passed when they arrived. I know she is now back with my dad as she always wanted to be.
Thank you all for being such great friends to my mom and dad. They really enjoyed and always looked forward to going to the reunions.
Also, thank you all for your service to our country. I was born at the military academy in MD so I have the navy in my heart and always will.
God Bless you all.
