Comments: I found this site and thought it appropriate to offer a book I found today. I have a 1963 USS Hector yearbook in which I am offering to a family member who was on the ship at the time. If you email me and have a family member listed in the book I will be happy to mail it to you. The book spoke to me *if you will* and it needs to find a rightful new home. Very neat photographs of the crew and ship along with listed names of crew memebers.
If there is someone out there who would like the book.
Thanks to all you men and women for your service to our country.

He passed away 8/22/2001, and I am trying to get any information available. Someone on board was very kind to my dad concerning a personal matter at home while he was in the Navy. He never found out who the person was to thank him. His superiors knew about the favor and I feel certain that there would be a record somewhere, but I haven't a clue how to begin my search.

Comments: Dear : USS HECTOR AR-7 Crewmen:

I found your name on a list of USS HECTOR crew members on the USS HECTOR Ship's Roster internet website. Our firm represents the family of Mr. Richard Boucher who served with you on board the USS HECTOR from 1960 to 1961 as a Boiler tender.

I am writing this letter to ask for your help. Mr. Richard Boucher recently passed away. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a form of cancer that the doctors agree was caused by Mr. Richard Boucher's occupational exposure to asbestos. His family is now involved in a wrongful death asbestos lawsuit, against the manufacturers, suppliers and civilian contractors. We are not pursuing the government in this action.

Unfortunately, Mr. Richard Boucher's family does not know the names of all of the various asbestos containing materials and the equipment that were used on the USS HECTOR. You may remember asbestos-containing products, such as:

-asbestos pipe insulation,
-asbestos cement/mud
-asbestos canvas or cloth
-asbestos block boiler insulation,
-valve packing,
-pump and flange gaskets,
-interior boiler refractory,
-floor tile,
-asbestos insulated wire, electrical panels with Bakelite insulators,
-laminate asbestos board for bulkhead panels and ceiling panels

Do you remember any of the brand names:
-Kaiser V-Block Refractory, used in the boilers
-Eagle-Picher,
-Johns Manville,
-Combustion Engineering, Foster Wheeler, Babcock and Wilcox, Cleaver-Brooks, Riley Stoker boilers
-Flexitalic, John Crane and Garlock packing and gasket products.
-Union Carbide Bakelite electrical insulation board, electrical components
-Westinghouse, Micarta covered asbestos bulkhead panels
-Cutler-Hammer, Square-D, Westinghouse, Alan-Bradley, and General Cable electrical components, switch gear, control panels, cable and wire.
-GE and Westinghouse Turbines

Do you remember which repair yards the USS HECTOR put into during the time you served on board this ship. Finally, if you recall any of the civilian contractors that worked on the USS HECTOR when she was repaired or overhauled please contact me.

Any information you can provide regarding this ship is extremely important to Mr. Richard Boucher's family. Please contact me at my email address mbasques@braytonlaw.com; call me at (800) 765-7778 extension 342, or write me at Richard Boucher Family, c/o Brayton * Purcell, 222 Rush Landing Road, Novato, CA 94945. I thank you in advance for your help.
