Comments: I would like to say that my father died in 1999, and he was so proud of having been the skipper of the Jupiter. I inherited a wonderful framed photo of the ship; I would welcome hearing from anyone who might have known my father. I am putting together some photos and stories for Fold 3 on line, which is the military genealogy site.

I hope you all have a wonderful reunion.

Comments: While working on my genealogy I requested my Dad's(Ronald E Huck) military papers as he had passed away in 1979. After boot camp he was stationed aboard the USS Jupiter from 1/8/46 -5/20/47. Then to the USS Princeton 7/3/47-7/23/48. His best friend was Ginnatasio from Boston MA. Ginny saved his life (as their story went) when some boat they were on went down. They were adrift a number of hours. They remained friends the rest of their lives. I am trying to put those pieces together. He was only 17 when he joined the Navy in 1945. Any vet's out there possibly remember him?

Comments: My father served aboard the USS Crook County during the Korean War, he had friends aboard the Jupiter too. I served aboard Enterprise (CVN-65). I recently came across the Jupiter's Ship Insignia Plate that has it's shield/motto. It was made of lead and I restored it, had a lithograph of the Jupiter made and then put it all in a box frame. It holds an honorable place in Dad's home and in our hearts.
