Comments: I am interested to find out if anyone knew or remembers my Father. His name was Robert "Bob" Dowler, he served on the Albuqurque during the Korean War. At the time he was probablly only around 20 or so. Dad never talked to me about it at all, please help me get to know this side of him if you can. He passed last Nov. after batteling cancer for about 4 years.
God Bless You all for your help and for all You did for our Country.

Comments: I was originally assigned to the Albuquerqe in early August, 1950 where she was laid up after being returned from Russia on the Lend Lease program. I had been transferred from an APA and thought this was my chance at the real navy. A Chief Machinist Mate (I cant renenber his name) and I were the only two assigned to the engine room at the time and we spent many hours crawling through the bilges tracing out lines trying to get the engines ready.
The ship was a mess then and I remember the guys that worked in the galley saying the Russians had left food in the hoppers which, of course, had rotted. This may have been the origin of the rats and roaches that Dan Mohnkern wrote about.
Anyway I was as happy as a kid wuth a new toy
and knew this was the place for me.

We were staying in the barracks and before we got her in commission I went in at noon and saw that I was being transferred (you guessed it) to an APA. I went screaming to Capt. Lowe and he said he would intervene and get that reversed.(at this time the crew was still small enough that the Capt. knew us all by our first names) He returned about two hours later he returned and told me it seemed I had some kind of critical MOS in my records as a landing craft engineer and something big was being planned and he stop my transfer. I never forgot Capt. Lowe,s effort. I went to the Cavalier the to Boat Group One where we made the Inchon and Wonsan landings then back to the Cavalier where I served out my enlistment two years later.

I neber knew what happened to the Albuquerqe after I left but I was thrilled to see she finally made it to sea.

Would like to hear from any one who might remember me.

Comments: I'm interested in knowing about my fathers part in the Korean War, what he did, what his rank was, and so on. I tried talking to my dad about it, but he never wanted to talk about the Korean War. I'm sure the memories were too painful. He passed away July 11,1984 but I'm still very much interested in his role as a Korean War Vet. I know that he was on the ship USS ALBUQUERQUE. If you knew my dad please write. Sincerly, Tina Nesteby

Comments: I was assigned to the USS Albuquerque PF-7 right out of Radio school in April 1952. I remember no one in radio school knowing what the Albuquerque was. Everyone said it was a cruiser, but did not know what the PF-7 stood for. I sailed to Japan on an old Liberty ship and flew to Manila in an Air Force plane and a Navy PBM took me to Subic Bay where I boarded.
I was on the Albuquerque PF-7 until it was decomissioned in 1953.

Comments: I want to correct my E-mail address; I'll be keeping this one. Also, it pleases me to see that Charlie Toler corrected some of the incorrect data I had in my first post last November.
