Comments: Can't believe The Orlando Training Center is no more, and my two ships, La Salle and Concord sit on the bottom of the sea. Like I didn't exist, but I know better. Great time to be in the USN under Elmo Zumwalt. Friends in my group picture, top row left to right, Larry Johnson, Calvin Hrivnak, Mike McAlister, bottom row, Bill Widener, me, Jerry Repasy. Regards to all my shipmates, especially Mike McAlister, my best friend on the Concord, and Mike Hood, my best friend off of it.

Comments: I'm research information on Howard L. Morris, for his son and daughter-in-law. They are searching for a photograph of their father. He was a crewman on the ship Concord, in March 31, 1945. I'm hoping someone might be able to help me find any photographs that may be available of this man.

Comments: I'd like to know whether anyone knows how contact three other CONCORD crew members. First, Clay Hayden. He was a Lieutenant when I was an Ensign/Ltjg. I relieved him as Navigator. He broke his ankle while jogging the main deck during our crossing back to Norfolk from the Med in 1981. But the skipper let him be OOD during sea and anchor detail as we transmitted Hampton Roads to the Ammo Anchorage to offload ordnance. Everything was fine until just before we reached the anchorage, then fog set in. As Navigator, I knew how far from center of anchorage the ship was, so I waited a minute or so, recommended "back full," gave LT Hayden wood chips to throw to the water, and told him when you sense no way on, order "all stop" and let go the anchor. Soon after we anchored, the fog lifted. I had my QMs take a round of bearings. We were dead center in the anchorage. The skipper and LT Hayden asked how the hell I did that. I told them, "Zen Navigation." The other is Tom Childs. I knew him as an Ensign. Like LT Hayden, he was a Villanova grad. Funniest shipmate I ever knew. We enjoyed liberty in Palermo and elsewhere, tasting the local foods and beverages. Nobody could do an impression of Curly of the Three Stooges better than he. The third is LT John Fidrych. He was attached to CONCORD during my first deployment and taught me a LOT. I know that he settled in Philadelphia after he left the Navy. He was Mark "The Bird" Fidrych's first cousin, and resembled him, too. While I'm thinking of it, any info on LCDR Rick Buttina (he was OPS BOSS), and LCDR Bob Brittingham (1st Lieutenant) would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: I loved my time on the CONCORD. I went from being 2nd Division Officer to COMMO, to CIC Officer to Navigator. I never served under a bad Captain. I had some issues with my XOs, but even they recognized my abilities. Both went on to make Captain. One went on to make Admiral. The most fun I ever had stateside on the CONCORD was the 300th (I think) anniversary of the city of CONCORD, MA during 1980. SO MUCH FUN! The most fun I had while deployed aboard the CONCORD was when we visited Gibraltar. The British army set there challenged the men of the CONCORD to "run the rock." A Quartermaster from the CONCORD beat them all! What a great time!

Comments: I was a BT and worked in the hole. Bunked with the A gang. I remember Chief Smiley looked like Budda and Chief Derrick hard nose but good guy. Both were always on my butt. I was not a very good sailor kind of a trouble maker didn't follow the rules. . Didn't like the Navy at the time but it was a great experience and was good for me. Would like to hear from any on board at the time.

Comments: To Dennis Potter I still have the leather sheath you made me for my CASE knife. The stitching gave out by the end of 1973 but I held it together with copper wire. You also made canvas covers for the gun mounts. Great job Potter. I still remember Littlefield and Kurby they slept in the row of bunks as D-3
