Never let the Chief know I was a Gyro Tech, got an "Early Out" 90+Days to begin college in Sept 1969 instead of Dec 1969. I was due to check out on monday but did everything to muster out on Friday and left on Friday, Chief returned that Monday, ship returned to mothballs, he was only one qualified to decom the Gyros. Had he know I had the school, I would have lost my early-out, and been stuck with Gyros Decom.
I sent the guys a "Care Package" of Seagrams Benchmark Bourbon when I got home to NY

Forgot most of actual names "Tex"? "Sweet"?

Comments: My neighbor told me this story: Her brother Marvin Trebacz served on the Taconic during the Korean War. In all the time he was gone their mother had never received a letter from him and was worried. So, she decided to call the Red Cross. They gave her a number at the Navy to call. The gentleman answering the phone asked what ship he was serving on, to which she replied the Titanic. When that was cleared up they were able to confirm that her son was indeed aboard the Taconic, and a letter was sent to the Captain of that ship, from the Department of the Navy, explaining the problem. Apparently the Captain called Marvin up to the bridge and ordered the young sailor to present him, each month, with a letter written to his mother. Marvin died a few years ago, and his sister would love to hear from any of you who knew him. Thanks!

Comments: I served in Taconic from November, 1956, to April, 1957, and had the unusual experience of having no assignment on the ship. ComPhibLant had an oversupply of journalists at the time and I was stowed away in Taconic and was berthed with the snipes. Finally, the ship's carpenter, a warrant officer whose name I forget, asked me to type up all the spec charts which are displayed in every compartment. He put me in the wardroom with a typewriter and treated me royally and was happy if I worked 3-4 hours a day. I had the run of the ship and would often help grizzled first class bosn's mates get liberty cards after hours etc. I had married in February '57 and wanted off. I was detached to ComPhibTraLant and then eventually to Navy air in Pensacola, where I settled.

Comments: It is the end of the summer in 1962. The USS Taconic is returning home from a 7 month Med cruise. The Atlantic Ocean is like glass, not a ripple anywhere in sight. The ship is making flank speed, everyone is anxious and happy about our return to Norfolk. All the petty differences and squabbles that arise after an extended time at sea fall away. Everyone onboard is your friend. At night no one can sleep. We sit on deck until 2 or 3 in the morning and talk about what we're going to do when we get home. One crew member purchased a very large (about 5 feet) Telefunken stereo and brought it on deck. About two days out of Gilbrator we can start to pick radio stations from the states. On deck at night the stereo is blasting and we hear American music that we haven't heard since leaving the states in January. One song gets played more then any other, "Cherry" by the Four Seasons. Today every time I hear that song I am transported back to the deck of the Taconic and expeience a little bit of that wonderful feeling.
Let me know if you were also on the deck of the ship listening to "Cherry".
