My Dad served on the USS Conway during WWII. I found the website and then viewed the photos in the albums. I found a picture of my Dad and two other gentleman of which brought a smile to my face. I cannot wait to tell my Dad about the website, show him the photos and articles and hear more stories of him being in the Pacific and proudly serving on the USS Conway. Thank you very much for this website it is fantastic and I look forward to sharing it with my family and especially my son who is a US Marine and served in Iraq. My son is always talking to my Dad about his service in WWII and my Dad vise versa with my son's tour in Iraq.

I SERVED AS 2ND DIVISON LEADING PETTY OFFICER DURING THE WESTPACT/VEITNAM 1966 DEPLOYMENT.
MY CRUISE BOOK WAS STOLEN LAST YEAR 2010 AND I HOPE SOMEONE CAN TELL ME HOW I CAN GET ANOTHER BOOK.
OTHER THAN MY VEITNAM CITATION THAT BOOK WAS MY ONLY MEMORY OF HOW I KEPT THOSE 3"50/5"GUNS BLASTING TO ACCOMPLISH ALL OF OUR ASSIGNED MISSIONS.

I was on the USS Conway In 1968 or 69, while in the USN Reserves. It was in Philadelphia. I was only on it for 2 weeks, but I have a few good memories. My Dad says that the Conway was in his group when he was in the Navy in 1945-46. I think that the Fletcher Clas Destroyers are so cool.

I just learned that my maternal grandfather, Louis Sanecki, served on the Conway during World War II, from about late 1942 to October 1944.
I don't necessarily expect anyone here to remember him, but I did want to post to see that if anyone here has any group photos of the ship from WWII, and there's a guy named Sanecki labeled on the back of the photo, I'd be interested in seeing it.
Thank you to the organizers of this site for having the resources to keep this going.

My Dad is HMC Wayne Miller who served on the USS Conway during the Korea War. He passed on in 1999. One of the articles that he left to me was the escape and evasion silk map that was carried by Ltjg Burgess, USN who was an A-1 Skyraider pilot rescued by the USS Conway. I remember my Dad relating the story and the superb professionalism of CDR Carey in accomplishing the rescue.
I would like to be in contact with men who knew my Dad during that time frame and recount those events.
Thanks to all for your great service

Name: * * * Pryor
From: Erlanger, KY
Came aboard just out of Radioman A school from May 64 to May 66.
Ship left for West Pack Cruise on Monday and Wayne Good Rm3 and myself were discharged on Friday before.
Made two Med cruises, Can remember someone one night in Naples as we were setting up a movie screen to watch movies on deck and the people would gather around and watch them from shore. One girl asked me why some of the men had on white hats with a Blue circle around the top. I said they have a social disease, and they are not allowed to go off ship this is a way we keep track of them. (fits because the public never saw them in that uniform off ship) Things you remember!
Keep in touch if you have time
