Comments: Hello, my father, Edwin Meyer, served aboard the St. Paul in 53 and 54 (Korean war)in turret 1. I went looking for a cruise book but got the wrong one. So, I have a 12 Aug. 50 - 21 May 51 cruise book to sell. It is in great condition and comes with some added photos and misc. items from a previous owner. I will part with it for what I paid: $60.00. I am also in the market fo a 3rd-cruise book 53-54. If anyone knew Ed Meyer (eddie), I am sorry to say his new address is the Golden Gate National Cemetary. He past away in 94. Email me if you are interested in the cruise book, have the one I want, or just want to hear about what Ed ended up doing after the war (If you were his friend). Email is Tmeyer63@att.net

Comments: My dad(Don Laue) was from Lime Springs Iowa. He served aboard the USS ST. Paul as a fireman. I know that he would be interested in any crew members that would remember the 50th anniversary of the explosion that took place on ship. My dad said that the explosion killed several men and that the cause was a explosion in the magazine storeage area. That was the area that my dad was responsible for as a fire control.

Also, I have a picture of the St. Paul arriving in Pearl Harbor. It think it was taken in early 1954.
