Comments: My father, Wladyslaw Szczech, AMS2, US NAVY, USS PRINCETON CV-
37 served proudly during the Korean war. He was an Aviation
Structural Mechanic, 2nd Class Petty Officer. He died at age
82 in his sleep on April 18, 2013. My father was a kind man,
who worked very hard to support his wife and their 5 children.
I am proud to have been his daughter. My father was buried with
military honors, and he will be deeply missed. My father
never received a Korean War Medal (they were offered about 6
years ago???). I wanted to get one in memory of him. Is this
possible? Also, I would like a list of his shipmates in his
unit. I was a given a list about 8 years ago, gave it to my
Dad, and cannot find it.

on the Princeton in 1953. Bob has Alzheimer's and
can't remember some things about his service days.
Bob right knee was injured while in the Navy but he
can't recall what happened. We have sent for his
medical records but that can take forever. I know Bob
was on the Princeton from 11 June 1953 to 27 July
1953 The Princeton receved a Navt Unit Commendation.
He also seved on the USS York Town just not sure when.
Any contacts would be helpful.

Comments: A major fuel supply center for the communist, was
the large oil refinery located at Aoji,North Korea,
less than 10 miles from the Soviet frontier, and
even closer to the North Korean, Manchurian border.
The site was beyond the range of land-based attack
aircraft. The mission was given to carrier-based
tactical aviation. On 1,Sept.1952, more than 144
aircraft from the USS Princeton CVA-37, USS Essex
CVA-9, and the USS Boxer CVA-21 carried out the
attack, (the largest aircraft carrier strike of the
Korean War.) Air attacks on industrial targets at
Munsan, and electric plants at Chongjin, were made
that same day. The missions were successful, and all
aircraft returned to their carriers safely.

Comments: My father William Alfred Kane was called back into the service after the outbreak of conflict on the Korean peninsula. He was part of the shakedown cruise that rushed the USS Princeton out of mothballs at Bremerton WA., ferrying aircraft to Korea. This shakedown cruise I learned a few years ago was featured in a Saturday Evening Post article which I bought of off Ebay. My father worked in the boiler room from sometime in 1950 to 51. The famous picture of the 2 Banshees dumping fuel flying past the Princeton in the background before landing on deck was used in our local newspaper to announce his return to service.
He captured many a landing and take off with his movie camera and shore leave time in Japan, which I have enjoyed watching over the years obviosuly in his off duty time. My father died at an early age in 1983. He also served onboard the heavy crusier USS Pensacola CA 24 in the Pacific theater joining the Navy following Pearl Harbor from 1942 to 1946. I am very proud of my dad wishing he had more openly talked his time in the Navy with me.

Comments: My dad J.C. Burt was on the Princeton from 1951 through 1953 I do beleive. He had these ship yearbooks that I remember when i was very young. He used to tell me all kinds of stories of things that went on while enlisted. He also had a 45 rpm record that he made with some other guys on the ship as he told me and the song was "That good ole'mountain dew". Does anyone remember that. I think he was a macinists mate. J.C. died in 2004.

My uncle was also on the ship his name was Lloyd Shoemake and I think he was a boatswains mate. This is how my dad met my mom from a picture my uncle had in his locker. He was killed in 1962 or 63 due to a work related accident here in Atlanta. He was also a big Triumph motorcycle enthusiast.

I miss them both greatly!

If you remember either of them let me know!

Dave Milosevich, served aboard in the 1950's twice, I believe he was aboard during the Korean War. Al McNeil, served at least one tour. I was there in their presents when they both learned that they were aboard the "Sweet P" at the same time. They recalled memories of the Regulas Missile firing on the forward flight deck, and being "sunk" by the USS Nautilus (SSN-571). Dave enjoyed razzing Al about being a "Sea Going Bellhop", who was proud of being the skippers guard. One day in Dave's office were he proudly hung a picture of the Princeton, Al gave him an old zippo lighter with the ship inscribed on the cover. Al McNeil passed away shortly after that (July 1994). They both were proud and honored to have served on the Princeton. Thank You.

Comments: My father passed away in July and the greatest times in his life he always said was when he was aboard the Princeton. He served in the Korean war 1950-1954. I am not sure when he served on the Princeton, but he always
talked about the great times he had. If anyone knew my father please email me at red2979@hotmail.com. I want to know what he was like when he was younger.
