aboard Kenneth Whiting from March 1953 to May 1955.
Was Senior Petty Officer of O-E Division for about
five or six months until May 1955. The Navy apparently
couldn't decide whether we belonged in the Engineering
Department as the E-R Division or whether we belonged
in the Operations Department as the O-E Division. :-)
Looking especially for former ET's, RD's and RM's also
if any ham radio operators.

For something like 17 years, no American had set foot on that island, until we got there. The little kids rescued one or two guys, caught, in a current, too far out...

I am writing up the activities of our squadrons in the Far East post WWII and would be interested to hear from anyone who has a story to tell of the relationship between us and our controllers - aboard the US Navy seaplane tenders. I note that Alden Schwartz sent us a very kind message when he relinquished his command of FAW6 and USS Kenneth Whiting figures among the seaplane tenders with which we operated.

He told me stories of Japan, (Iwakuni-by-the-Sea?), Austrailian pilots, drinking with Ernie Fry?, typhoons, accidentally hosing the Captain's wife off of the deck. He died two weeks ago after a 5 yr. battle with lung cancer, but I would love to find anyone who might have known him back then.
