Welcome USS Conway's Logbook





Comments:
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 !!

My father Wally Doerflinger served abourd the Conway from 1943 until after the end of the war. He was a Water tender 1st Class from Cleveland Ohio. I have some pictures taken aboard ship during the war...He always enjoyed talking about his time on the Conway. He talked about Leyte Gulf, the invasion of the Phillipanes Sipain and Tinian and running the slot, although that part of the war was mostly over by 1943..they made liberty in Pearl Harbor and came back to San diago once...stories of the Riptide Bar and fighting with Marines...He died in 1984 and was buried at sea thanks to friends in the Navy...

Dear Spencer French,

I hope the reunion went well. It looks like a few WW2 veterans are still on board, Dr Greene included.You are great to keep everyone connected. I was moved by the agent orange story. So many years and finally some relief.

So my father would be 92 now.

Hope you are pleased with how it all came off.

Best wishes, Josie ( George W Merck, daughter)

Served on Conway 1959 - November 1961. We took part in the Bay of Pigs fiasco but were not recognized for it because Robert Kennedy had denied we were there - that always pissed me off - in fact, still does! :o
