Comments: I served aboard the USS Deuel from 1951-1954 as a Seaman in the S division and then later apx 1953-54 as an ET in the C division. In 1954 I transferred to the USS Gilbert Islands (CVE107) in Boston, MA and then in early 1955 to the USS Tarawa which was in drydock until my discharge in May, 1955. I am in relatively good health, 85 years old, and would like to hear from anyone remembering me. I have just applied for the Korean War Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.

Keywords: The only close friend I remember from the USS Deuel is Dick Wehrheim ET, but has passed on several years ago.

Comments: I don't know why I was thinking of the Deuel this
morning while I was shaving. We used to go to the
Deuel renumions until a few years ago mainly to meet
my shipmate and best friend Gene Aubin.
Unfortunately Gene passed away November, 2011. Nice
Guy. His wife Mary still lives in Georgetown Texax.
Also a very nice lady.

The Deuel Association is now ended as the members
were getting too old to travel.

Wish I was younger to visit all of them that I made
friends with at the reunions.

Miss you all.

Sid

Comments: Please contact my e-mail with any information
about our 1953 summer cruise from Norfolk via
Panama Canal, San Diego, Yokohama with loading
of Army 1st Cav. at Korea beachhead.

Most of the crew like myself were in their late
teens thus the term "Kiddie Cruise".

As most of our teen crew sailed on the Deuel for
four years during their 17th to 21st birthdays,
we experienced the following ports of call:

1953 - Havana, Guantanamo, Roosevelt Roads,
San Juan, Vieques, St. Croix, V.I.,
Jamaica, Haiti, Bahamas, Miami, Myrtle
Beach, S.C., Norfolk and Portsmouth, VA
1954 - Mediterranean: Naples, Italy
Morrocco and Portugal

Caribbean (same as 1953)
Hurrican Carol followed us north to
Qunset Point, R.I. Deuel sustained
damage to bow while tying up to pier.

1955 - Deuel went into drydock at Portsmith, VA

1956 - Shakedown cruise to Caribbean and
gunnery practise at Vieques, P.R.

1957 - Prepared Deuel for mothballs at
Portsmouth, VA.
Kiddie Cruise completed

As a freelance writer, I would certainly like to
hear from all of you. As a shipmate, it would be
great to share your memories.

Keywords: As one of the barbers and custodian of the ship's
store, I most likely came in contact with almost
all the crew members and intransit troops.

We also formed a jam session band consisting of
Darrel Bartlett - Trumpet E-Div.
Cookie Smith - Clarinet Cook Div.
Bill Johnson - Trombone - Marine
Leo Gracik - Drums - Cook Div.
Ralph Boivin - Saxophone - S Div.
