Comments: I would like any stories or memories that any of you
have of my father, Mario Paolotto, who served on the
Keppler from 1952-1954. I am his youngest daughter
Shari and am organizing a military sendoff for him as
there was no military ceremony done when he passed
away 15years ago and I have only just gotten a flag
in his honor. Any info about the missions or memories
for the service on May 20th would be greatly
appreciated! It is a surprize for my mother.
Afterwards, his ashes will be taken to a naval vessel
for a burial at sea.

Comments: I have the greatest admiration for the US Navy in their concern for the lives of every person in harms way. I think of the hours we searched in hostle waters off Korea trying to locate airman from a downed aircraft. The Keppler was dead in the water with all engines and machinery stopped. Each shipmate was on deck with his hands cupped behind his ears to listen for a human cry in distress. It never came. After 10-12 hrs we rejoined the Task Force.
