Comments: left frisco on usns hase aug 1952 on a packed full usns hase. truly the most miserable 2 weeks of my 4 year USAF hitch. returned to states july 1953, after tour of duty at suwon, korea, aboard usns freeman. exact same type ship as hase but only 600 odd air force personnel aboard. was almost like a cruise. actually enjoyed the whole 2 week return trip (via adak island in the aleutians). only one man to every tier of 4 bunks as compared to 4 men to a tier on the hase. the higher up the tier the better due to upchucking from sea sickness. i was lucky never sick for a minute. we were a filthy bunch going over. little or no ventilation and it was middle of the summer. fresh water showers every 4 or 5 days. could salt water shower, but you would itch like hell. lived on milky way candy bars many days due to the chow lines being so long on the hase. on the trip back we ate well and no waiting to speak of. i would do the return trip tomorrow if i could. returned to seattle instead of frisco. quick processing and off for oklahoma and a 30 day furlough before my final duty station in texas and discharge. those were the days.

Comments: I went from Sacramento, CA to Yokahoma, Japan on the
E. T. Collins. We crossed the 180th Meridian on
November, 15, 1951. After processing in Tokyo I flew to Kimpo and then to Taegu to spend a little less than a year.
I returned home on the D. I. Sultan late in September, 1951. I was discharged at March Air Force Base in California.

I will always have fond memories of that journey.

Comments: My husband and I,the then Airman 1st class Donald M.Patterson sailed 50yrs ago from Portsmouth, England on the Darby April 1st to New York. If there is anyone who remembers this trip I am looking for more details of Port of entry, could have been Brooklyn or Manhatten Beach, Don's trunk has Manhatten Beach stamped on it. Also, anyone with memories to share of this trip. I remember one young woman who shared the cabin was pregnant at that time, we were all sea sick, but she was more so. I traded bunks with her so she would be more comfortable on the bottom one. Seemed like we were very close to the engine room, very loud, difficult to sleep. We were an extra day on the ship because of a very bad storm and the ship turned around to help another ship in distress, another ship was able to give rescue help so we went on our way. During the storm at meal time everything went flying off the table and our waiter hit against the side of the ship breaking his arm, not very pleasant. When the men were able to be with their wives we played card games of 'Crazy 8' and 'Hearts', these were new games to me. I am writing out my voyage to the USA for my children and grandchildren, so any information would be appreciated. Thank you, Margaret

He also remembers the ship breaking down several times before clearing the U.S.We are trying to find the name of the ship if possible. He returned from Yokahama to Seattle in May of 1952 on a military transport. Again, we are trying to find the name of the ship. He just doesn't recall anything and he was the only person from his unit on the ship, sent to replace another sargeant

Comments: I was a Sea Scout from Seattle, Washington in the summer of 1963 when I, and about 30 others, cruised aboard the USS Gen. William Mitchell, TAP-114. We were part of a well established special cruise program for Sea Scouts and Sea Cadets and we received training, OJT and stood watches with the Navy crew. I was told at the time that the Mitchell was one of the few MSTS transports with a Navy, as opposed to merchant, crew. One of the Mitchell's primary tasks was transporting troops from the 1st Cavalry Division to and from Korea. At that time we were told there was still combat patrol action on the DMZ. It was particularly memorable when we anchored in the harbor at Inchon and were trasported into shore by LSMs. We were met by fellow Korean land scouts, the mayor of the town and there was a mini-parade for us including transport to the MacArthur monument. Our arrival was special because of the 10 year anniversary of the armistice. Us lowly Sea Scouts were treated like kings. Perhaps some of you folks out there remember the groups of "kids" on board, living in one of the crews quarters.

Comments: As a young US Army 2d Lt I was a member of the team that escorted 1500 troops from Ft Hood Texas to Germany in Sep 1958. One of those 1500 was Elvis and we sailed on the Randall. I remember vividly the departure from New York with hundreds on the wharf to see us off and the arrival in Germany with as many or more to greet us. Elvis would not perforn in the traditional variety show produced by the troops on board much to the chagrin of the Air Force Capt that volunteered for that duty. However I did witness Elvis providing piano accompaniment to a trooper singing "I Found My Thrill On Blueberry Hill." Although Elvis would not perform he did agree to produce the show. When this became known anyone with any talent at all wanted in the act. Even a sailor auditioned and was put on the play bill perfoming his act of swallowing knives and eating light bulbs! It was a great show.

Would like to hear from anyone else on that trip and their observances.

Comments: As a sixteen year old Infantry Private I was assigned during my cruise aboard the USNS George W. Goethls to the small Sick Bay as a Latrine "HEAD" Orderly. Enroute from NY to Bremerhaven Germany. Aug or Sept. 1950 and I am not sure of the ship name.
I shall NEVER forget a redheaded Navy nurse, Elizabeth Reagan. There were no patients in the sick bay, mostly I waxed the floor. Lt. Regan would make me sandwitches. Being of tender years I would sit for hours oggling her as she sat at her small desk in her white uniform. Would like to communicate with MS Reagan.
