I never had the opportunity to hear any stories of what he went through while proudly serving his country. If any one here did know him, somehow I'm sure y'all remember each other well. Now that I am old enough to understand what serving our country means I know it was something he kept with him inside always. Please help me know more about a dad that was taken too soon.

One week end in Nov., 1951, I visited a friend, from my home town of Atlanta, GA, I think. I have forgotten his name. I visited him and ate chow aboard
the CVE Bairoko in San Diego. It's funny how I can
remember the ship so easy but don't remember the friend. This is a long shot, I know, but if anyone remembers any information from this time period, please let me know.

My father's name was James Robert Morris Long and her served on this ship during the Korean War. He was in the Bikini Atoll Islands during the hydrogen bomb testing. He passed away in 1997 from a rare cancer called VIPoma or Carcinoid Syndrome. He used to enjoy getting together with his ship mates at the annual reunions.
I'm glad to see a website developed for the folks who served on that ship, if he were alive today that would have been a real kick for him to be able to log on and see what was going on.
