This section is for pictures submitted by shipmates.  So, dig out those old albums and photos and communicate what you have that could be included.  If you can't scan them, and will trust them to me, I'll scan them and return the originals promptly.  If you don't want to trust them to the mails, I suggest you try the possibilities at your local school.  Most now have the capabilty to scan, and if you bring your own floppy or cd-rw disks should readily handle a few photos. 

I can convert just about any file format for posting.

File sizes are indicated on some of the photos to give an idea of download timing.

Some of the photos are organized into "Albums"  albumicon which are groupings with a common theme or timeframe.  The albums are composed of thumbnail views.  Click on the thumbnails for the larger image file.  Wait for the complete download of the image to get the full clarity.

Posting on the internet requires the use of JPEG format which causes image quality losses and distortions.  Should you wish to make prints of any of the photos, send a note, and in some cases I can email you a copy in a different file format which will yield better results than what you view on screen.
Additional photos are only accessible from links which accompany stories on the

"This is No B.S."  or  "Reunion News"  or on the History pages.

ca. 1969 -  I forget the occassion, but I remember that we had just had a dungaree inspection.  One of our .30 caliber machine guns was in the forward torpedo room along with a few cans of ammo.  We took turns draping ourselves with the ammo belts and snapping "hero" photos. - Jeff Owens
