Comments: Hi,

My dad served on one of the little 50 ft mindsweepers they had nicknamed the Mighty Mouse during the Korean War. I am trying to find anyone who knew my dad and has stories or has pictures from that era. He is from San Bernedino, CA and was obviously in the Navy. He said they use to partner with the soon to be Navy seals dropping them off on shore while they went out and did there thing. If ou could give me any information I would love to hear or see it.

Thank you.

Comments: I served from 53 to 56 on fourty and fifty footers. The fourty footers were used with sweep wire and depressers and a float called the "Pig" I was on the fourty footers # 16 and # 17. I was part of the crew that won the Navy E in our unit.

We would load out crafts and work sheds aboard LSD's and then go to the Korean War zone and sweep for mines. We changed ships [LSD's] about once a month or sometime every two months.

My first duty station was Adak, Alaska stright from boot camp [ San Diago ] and I was as far south as Borneo and several points in between

Keywords: A couple of guys that I have not forgot at least not their last names were Wiess and Karnes, if you look up the word Crazy in Websters Book you will see their picture.
