Welcome USS Conway's Logbook
Name: Michael Lord
From: Jersey City, NJ
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

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

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.
