Comments: My stepdad Lee Kellerman was on this ship, I do not know his rank or division. He never talked about it much. I'm in search of photos, an album or something with his picture that I can add to his collection. Lee passed away Oct 29, 2014 complications with his heart and pneumonia. So if anyone has something, I am willing to buy it also.

Comments: I have been researching my father's time as a merchant seaman during the Korean and Vietnam wars. I came across this photo he took of the U.S.S. Rochester taken sometime in 1951-52. I believe it is located either off Inchon or Pusan as there are hills slightly visible in the background as well as her secondary armament is raised. She appears to be either hauling or dropping anchor as it is partially covering her number. A slight wake is also visible. The other ships appear to be static.

I will e-mail a copy of this photo to whomever requests it.

I would be happy to hear from anyone who has further information or can better identify this deployment.

He would have been at the San Diego Armed Services YMCA and recorded a 78rpm album and sent it back to a relative in Alton Illinois in Aug of 1951. I have found the recorded songs and the envelope in which it was sent home. I am sure that they would like to have this back if at all possible. And I would like a little history on this if possible.

Comments: My Father-in-law, Craig Kingsbury, served aboard the Rochester on both Korea cruises. He attended several reunions in the 1990s. Craig went west in March of 2003. His nickname aboard was "Tiny", since he was one of the tallest members of the crew. He was (I believe) a Fireman 2nd class. If anyone knew him, I would appreciate hearing any stories or remembrances to pass on to his widow and daughters.

Comments: My brother Melvin Leon Grubbs was aboard the Rochester prior to and during the Korean War. He was aboard during the Quemoy (?) insurrection. He of course was my hero and I've been lucky enough to learn so much from him. Unfortunantly, Melvin's life was taken July 18, 1953. He was a true sailor dedicated to his ship and may have been a little foolish now and then to get the opportunity to serve in the front compartment. I am anxious to hear from any of his shipmates. I do have quite an array of USS Rochester Memories, and would feel blessed to hear from anyone who served with Melvin. I am a career Army retiree, having served 30 years, and would have been a Navy veteran, if the Navy recuriter had not been out to lunch, during my visit to the Muncie, Indiana Post Office. God Bless you all, and thank you for your service to this great country of ours.
