He remembers going from Seattle to Yokahama in July of 1951 in a troop ship with civilian personnel manning it, and with many men from the 101st Airborne Division on board. 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

Soldiers ran up the ladders thinking the ship was sinking, and sailors stopped them and everything was again calm. The next day there was on the starboard side from the bow to about 40 feet back the deck guard rail was missing . My question is WHAT HAPPENED???

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.

There were two other ships also heading for South Korea with us. I believe they were the USS Gordon and USS Walker. We were some of the last major troop movements by the DOD to go by sea. 12,500 of us landed about the same time. One of the other ships had a propeller shaft problem in mid pacific ?? Which one was it ??
The USS Mitchell went back to Hawaii and hauled the 3rd Brigade of the 25th Inf. Div. to Vietnam.

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.

He was the XO. The Capt was a R.B. Randall. He was 12 yrs older than my wife when they married in 1955 in Tiajuana, Mexico. They parted after he told her he wanted to return to his first wife and children. She never told me his full name and I didn;t ask. She just said his last name was Pratt. He was supposed to divorce her and she just never knew if he did it or not. I would just like to know his full name. Both he and my wife are dead so it can't hurt or make difference now. I recently talked for a long time to the widow of my wife's first husband. I was able to provide her with information that helped her greatly. It involved a child which he had told his wife did not happen. That didn't happen between my wife and Pratt however I would like to see if it's possible to talk to someone close to him. His wife knew of the marriage.
She wrote and asked him to come back to her and he did. Thanking you in advance. Charles E. Bowling, US Army, Retired.

remember that we were in a terrible storm from the first night
out through the remainder of our crossing of the North
Atlantic. My mother tells the story of our not being able to get
into South Hampton to dock because of the weather as well
and giving out distress signals all night. I remember ropes in
the passageways to hold onto and people being ill and huge
waves out the porthole. No one was allowed on deck during
the journey because of the storm. I served as a Navy Nurse
am now a retired AF nurse and have not traveled by ship in
my own career, but I still have a postcard of this ship and it is
wonderful to know she has enjoyed a long and successful
career. We returned from England on the USS William Darby

Comments: Sailed on the Patch (Ordinary Seaman) to Germany, Vietnam, Korea and Japan during the summer of 1966. An experience I will not forget. Sorry I didn't take any pictures (except a couple of pretty bad ones going through the Panama Canal). My boss was the bosun mate, a great fellow named Brooks.
