I received one email from a Buddy of his, also from Henry Stephens, but when my son put in my new computer, he lost them. I have gotten all his medals. But the ones that answered befor would answer again, Boy would I be GLAD. I was just 13 when he went in. He died at age 54 of Cancer. But he lives in my heart. I would like

The Mispillion was ordered to Sasebo,Japan to take on oil and petrol for the many U.S. Naval ships that had already arrrived from various parts of the globe. I was a radioman and would like to find old shipmates who served with me aboard her.

We were in many engagements during my 2 1/2 years on that tanker. Sure would be nice to contact old shipmates like Chief Croze, RM, Dillahay, RM, Bobbie Smith, RM, E.E. Erwin, RM. I was 18 years old when the shit hit the fan at the 38th. I am now 68.5 and health is bad. Thanks for this very neat program which I am sure has done so well to reconnect old soldiers and sailors.

Looking for shipmates who served with me aboard the Mispillion from June, 1950 to December of 1952 during the Korean war.

I was a radioman, about 18 years old when I boarded her at Long Beach. We were in the Marshalls when the war broke out. We were dispatched to Sasebo, Japan and then on to the 7th Fleet operating in the northern seas of Korea. I remember CPO Croze, Dillahay, E.E. Erwin, Bobbie Smith and two other guys whose name slips my 68 year old memory. One of them repaired the teletype machine and the other guy was an RM1 who made chief. We were all radiomen. I got 20 hours for cussing out the cook and did the time in one of the tanks, scraping and painting.

We were nearly hit by a stick of bombs dropped by a MIG15 near Wonsan Harbor. I saw the damn MIG drop them and thought we had bought the farm. Bombs missed us and exploded in the river. We visited Hong Kong a few times. We played softball and drank beer on Eniwetok and Buckner Bay, Okinawa. I had a friend who I named HOSENOSE Riley. Another pal, short guy, Italain, named Sirronia or Ciccone or something. Wife died from tetanus after stepping on a nail while they were adding a room to their home.

Wonderful friends aboard the U.S.S Mispillion whom I have not seen or heard of in 47 years. We refueled the Boxer, Philliipine Sea, all DD'S and DDE'S, all carriers, all BB'S, all heavy cruisers, such as the Toledo and so many more. The Cimarron (AO-22) and Kaskaskia were doing their good jobs there also. I miss my old friends and would give anything to hear from any or all of them. I have terminal cancer and will be "checking out" pretty soon.

God bless you all. Lee H. Adams
