Served aboard the gray lady from 66 - 68. It was always smooth sailing, right guys? LOL
I would love to hear from Les Ramsden and Gary Bernard. I know we all had some good memories.

I was an electrician from 3/57 to 12/58 on the Conway. Native Pittsburgher but wife and I retired to Arizona in 1989 after a career as a schoolteacher in Warren, Ohio. Any EM's out there from that era? Especially would like to hear from Bruno Casartelli.

Just received the latest edition of the "Tin Can Sailors" and found our sister ship, the USS Eaton DD-510, on the cover with an article entitled, "The End of Hostilities". I turned to the second page of the article and there is a picture of our beloved Conway. Very interesting reading which contains many references to the Conway in August of 1945. My thanks to Lt. Ridley Monk of the USS Eaton for writing and submitting the article.

My dad died on 1-8-09 and he was on the Conway in the early to mid 60's. I would like to hear from anyone that was with him. I also think my uncle was there sometime too. Their names are Howard and Harold Black. My uncle is still with us and living in WVA.
