My Dad (Edward J. Slifka) served on the USS Conway from 1964-1968 stationed out of Norfolk, VA. I would love to hear from anyone that may have been friends with him or might have some pictures to share. Thank you! Kim

I arrived on board the Conway October 1962 by hi-line from the Neosho AO-143 during the Cuban Blockade. I was an Electrician in "R" Div. My mentor was JM Thomas EM2, I think he was from Texas. I did make EM2(E-5) and got transferred to the Tidewater AD-31 in June 1966 just before the Conway made the WesPac cruise. I still keep in touch with Don Brown IC2 and Tom Fowler( a ping jockey), along with Larry Gentry EM3.

My Uncle, Robert C. Hunt served on the Conway in WWII. He was a rescue swimmer. Uncle Bob lived in Memphis Tennessee and worked for General Motors. He was transferred to St.Louis Mo, in 1976. He retired from GM and moved to Las Vegas, NV. He married late in life and did not have any children but he was a great uncle. He died of lung cancer about 20 years ago.
He had a story about a monkey on the Conway that stole the captain's glasses that he used to tell his niece and nephew.

My father Andrew "Jack" Guess served aboard the Conway in the latter days of WWII. Oh the stories he would tell! He passed on in 1996 but the stories still live and are passed on to his grand children and now great grand children. I cherish the pictures and 'souvenirs' he left - I even found 2 pictures of him on your web site - one of which I had never seen before. The thing that I most cherish is the FREEDOM that he and all our country's warriors fought to defend. For that, I am forever grateful.

Non sibi sed patriae ... (Not self but country) .. no truer words could be said of these warriors.

Blessings to all who served !!
