Comments: As a 5 year old dependent child, I sailed from New York to
England aboard this ship in December 1951 with my mother
and brother and sister to join my father who was in England,
already. I only remember parts of the journey, but vividly
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
in the summertime and had a wonderful smooth crossing.

Comments: As a 5 year old USAF dependent I sailed to Japan on the William O. Darby in 1951 (if memory serves me correctly) with my mother and sister.
We were on the way to Japan to join my father, USAF Major James Desmond who was stationed there in support of the Korean War operations.
I had a ball on the crossing and remember buying slinky toys from the ships store and the initiation of first time crossers of the international date line.
Sorry to see the ship is to be (or already has been) scrapped.

Mario lives in San Antonio, Tx. He was sent to Ft. Jackson, NC wit the Dixie Division, then to Camp Atterbury, ID, then to Korea. This is all he remembers. I hope someone can remember him and contact me. I'm trying to help with his VA benefits.

I am looking for a photo of the General Hodges troop ship that has a soldier in the crows nest flipping to bird when the ship enetered port in the USA around 1951. The ship deck was full of people when the photo was taken. My father Howard Williams was this person who climbed to the highest point on the ship. He remembers the photo but it was destroyed by his future wife (my mother) when she viewed the picture. He says that this photo was given out to numerous people by a photographer at the dock. Any help would be appreciated in my search. Thanks

Comments: Down at the very bottom of this list there is a section entitled "New Section" dated 29 Aug 1998 posted by blxJac@aol.com. It has some good information. In it he says "the Navy is not wild about addmitting that anyone other than they, know how to operate ships." I can believe that.

I never served in what I called the "real" Navy other than boot camp. I always had cushy, laid-back, non-militaristic duty but I did serve a year in the Military Department on the USNS BARRETT (T-AP 196). I had occasion to observe our ship's seamanship as well as some seamanship on the part of the "real" Navy on USS ships.

The "real" Navy was very impressive but then our status in those days was only slightly above that of the galley slaves in Ben Hur. You got good at what you were doing "or else" and you didn't really want to know what the "or else" was. I suppose the merchant marine officers were intelligent, capable and well trained (I really don't know for sure) but I had occasion to observe the seamanship of our merchant marine crew under some difficult situations and it seemed rather inept.

Comments: If anyone has any info on this magnificent ship. I was 6 years old on my first voyage on this ship. My mother and I were on our way to Germany to be with my dad who was stationed there. I remember it like it was yesterday. But what im curious about is,not sure where in NYC we boarded her. I was thinking it was Brooklyn but not sure. This would be in 1964. The ship went to France. Also what im looking for is her retirement? I found a web site tonite with her picture, that really touched my heart. She was truley a beauty, and her staff was very accomidating. If anyone was on that ship that time period, would also love to hear from you. My father was 21 year veteran of the US Army. His pride and joy, and a big part of my life. His retirement was in 1969 out of Fort Niargra NY
thank you for your time
