Comments: I reported for duty on the Concord May 17, 1968 in San Diego. I am a plank owner. Feb. 1969 passed through typhoon on the way to Panama Canal and then Norfolk Virginia. Made the trip to GITMO for ship's training and later for our first departure when we replenished the USS Yorktown. I was the captains phone talker. All these memories I still have and several pics. of the original crew. I was transferred to CINCLANT FLT HQS. in Jun 1969 for the rest of my tour.

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: We had a little white car that sported a "Go Navy" bumper sticker. After a liberty weekend, I noticed someone had taken a Sharpie and written the word "away" in between the "Go" and "Navy." On the next liberty weekend (this was before cell phones), I told Dave someone had vandalized the car. He said, "Are you talking about the bumper sticker, because I did that." He may have griped and complained about everything during those 2 years, but later on, the stories were lovingly told and retold many times. He missed the Navy and we all still miss him. Hope to meet some of his shipmates at the reunion in October.

Comments: I was assigned to the Concord while she was in the yards at Portsmouth, Va in 1972. Did GTMO that year with a stop in Haiti before heading back. Then our quick turnaround for our Med cruise Dec. 27, 1972 - June 1973. Quick shout out to Alan Wisniewski, I also traveled with you and Jim Molinari on the weekends up to NY and back to Norfolk. Jim used to get me into Queens on his way home to Rockaway and meet me at the same spot on Sunday evening. Good Times. Good Shipmate. Also a quick shout out to Darrell Pauley, Danny Huff and Chuck Wallace!

Comments: My father I believe served on the USS Concord. Lou Bradley. He died after getting out of the service on 8 Aug 80. Is there anyone who can shed some light on who he was as a man or if anyone has information on the rest of his family such as sibling and parents. I was told growing up that he had a daughter that was born after his death. I would love to find her. He as married to someone other than my mother just before his death. I have never met my sister and would love to. I have lost all contact with that side of my family can someone help please. Thank you.
