Comments: Looking for shipmates. Assigned to USS Electron out of Electronics School at Great Lakes. Was aboard her for a few months and then transferred to the USS Chimon (AKS-31), where I spent 1952-1954. After which I was transferred to COMSERVRON on the USS Hector (AR-7) where I finished by 4 year term in January 1955.

How about an entry for the USS Chimon (AKS-31)? Looking for shipmates from that time period also.

Comments: I served on the USS Electron in 1954. The ship alternated between
Sasebo and Yokosuka, Japan, but we had a 3 months visit to the
Phillipines and a couple of trips to Hong Kong. I have fond memories
of this time-- some of the best years of my life. I was an Electronic
Technician 3rd class, and specialized in teaching and repairing
teletypes.

Comments: I broke my back in April 1955 while serving on a boat crew in Yokosuka. The boot boom cable broke and the boom landed on my head. I went to the hospital and did not return to the Electron. I am making an album of my time in the Navy and do not have a picture of the ship. If any one could help, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

John I. Estes
