Comments: My Father turned 81 years old in November and ever since I was a little kid, he would always tell me about his time in the Navy. He told me he was stationed in Okinawa but we have been unable to find any paperwork or people who may have served with him. It would have been 1953-1957 I believe.

Comments: I'm looking for anyone who might have known my dad. He would have served on the Kermit Roosevelt in the mid- to late 50's as a mechanic of some sort. Sadly, he died in 1994. I have two stories I remember from him- One of an incident involving a collision or near collision with a Chinese vessel in the China sea and the other an accident in which he broke his neck in a fall while attempting to climb into an upper bunk bed.

I know he was very young when he served. If any of this rings a bell, I'd love to hear some more of the stories.
Thanks all.
