Welcome to the USS Conway DD/DDE-507

 

Welcome USS Conway's Logbook





Comments:
I reported aboard the Conway along with G W Harris, Feb 1954, as EMFA.
J D Gray and I transferred to USS SHENADOAH AD26 after I was promoted to EM 2 on May 1956.
I attended the Conway reunion when it was held in Norfolk along with KV Young, JD Gray, GW Harris. We all were electricians mates at the time we were on the Conway.
I went into the Naval Air Reserves after getting off of active duty and flew as a radar operator on P2s, and P3s until the Navy "fired" me because of high year tenure. I had over 38 years when I retired.
I still shake my head and laugh at some of the things I remember about my time on the Conway.
My first overseas port was Havana, Cuba. Drinking those 15 cent rum and cokes were hard on a none drinker.
Standing Shore Patrol on the "Bloody Mile" was some thing you never will forget.
Our Chief was Joe Quall, great guy, Division officers were Wright, Du Boise, and Mercer.
Gads we were young. I will be 82 next week. It all seems like yesterday

Served on USS Beale (DDE-471) and USS Conway was one of the "tin cans" in Desron 28. Many good memories of Task Group Alfa. Best wishes to all shipmates.

If at all possible could someone here send me pictures of CIC during the 1950s on the Conway.
I've seen some but they do not look like the combat I knew. :D
