Sea Stories / First Day On the Ship
« Last post by Jim911 on May 06, 2016, 05:24:39 AM »
On my first day on the Rciketts in Air Aft FTM 1 Don Comar told me to make the coffee.  He told me where to get the water in the midships passage way. So with coffee pot in hand I climbed down the outside ladder for Air Aft and made my way to the mid ships passage way tp the to the slop sink to get the water I turned on the cold water careful on to spill any as directed. After filling the coffee pot made my way back to the ladder and up to Air Aft with ourt spilling any water.  In the radar room I made the coffee. FTM 1 Comar sat in front of the Number 2 radar waiting for the red light on the coffee pot to come on with his coffee cup in hand.  As soon as the red light came on he filled his cup with the freshly brewed coffee and took a big swig and promptly spit it back into his cup and said you used salt water.  He had neglected to tell me that the cold water spioket was salt water. He hold me to try again and get the fresh water this time. So back I went only this time I had to carry a coffee pot with hot water in back down the ladder to the mid shps passage way. This happened in March of 1967. :)

Just swapped emails with Cap't Kirk, sorry to hear about Carl Slack. Reunion sounds like a good idea, now if I could persuade this old collection of bones to depart the comfort of my South Carolina home and drive to Jacksonville I'd like to make it. Know more about all that come April. I wonder how many of us MMD types are still kicking?

Ya'll take care,
John Wofford (BM3 during MMD, made second then first in Vietnam.)
2016 Reunion / 2016 DDG-5 Reunion

Come join us at the 2016 DDG-5 Reunion in Jacksonville, Florida
2016 Reunion / Re: 2016 Reunion Coordinator Wanted!
« Last post by CaptainKirk on March 18, 2015, 04:26:17 AM »
The DDG-5 Crew Members Association Executive Council has appointed a Reunion Committee consisting of LeRoy Kidd, Glenn Johnson, and Kirk Neuman.  We are working together to complete requirements for the 2016 Reunion in Jacksonville, Florida.  Glenn has confirmed the dates for the reunion, May 12 - May 15, with the hotel (currently the Crowne Plaza Riverside - Jacksonville, but will be re-branded DoubleTree by Hilton Jacksonville Riverfront on September 1, 2015 after a $5 million renovation).  He is currently solidifying our contract.

We are also looking at various tours that we can schedule.  Tours are really based on the probability that the Adams will be in Jacksonville by the time our reunion happens and that there will be "work party" time for those shipmates in attendance to help with the restoration of the Adams.  Tour information will be more solid later this year and information will be posted on the website in the 2016 Reunion page so check back regularly for updates and probably changes.

We are also looking for help from anyone who lives in or around the Jacksonville area who is willing to assist in various aspects of pulling the reunion together.  If you are interested in helping out, please contact the Reunion Committee here.
