Comments: I served on the Herbie J. from 1948-1952 and would like to hear from others who were aboard. I remember Cmdr. Sibley Ward and lots of other guys. I also have fond memories of Cartagena and Kobe, Japan. Would love to hear from anyone who served on that ship during my time aboard.

Comments: My father was Commander Sibley L. Ward, Jr. ("Sam"), and was commander of the Herbie J from 1950-1952. I have heard from many who served with him, but am anxious to hear anything and everything. I never met my father, you see, and have only recently found these sites to find out something about him. If anyone has ANY pictures or whatnot, please notify me? Thank you so very much in advance! I would love to share the letters I HAVE received with any who served on her during that time frame. You may know someone who isn't listed here!
Thanks again!
