Comments: My father served aboard the Lenawee in 54, he was assistant boat group commander. His name was William Nyce. Unfortunately he passed away June 2012. Just wanted to make contact with anyone who may have known or served with him. He was an avid fan of the Leapin Lena and had wonderful stories of his time on board as well as stories of Capt. McCrea. I was fortunate to meet Adm McCrea back in 95.

Comments: My father served on board the USS Lenawee between 1965 and 1966. He worked with 1 of the LCM Mike Boats on board. His name is Paul Barker. I am trying to figure out the LCM specifics to have a model made but when I ask him he tells me it was an LCM 24. I can't find anything like that. Can you gentlemen help me out? When I research it just tells me LCM with no specifics. Thank you for your time and your service.

Comments: Served on Lenawee from spring 60 to October 62. Lenawee sent me and Robert Harrington to Boat Coxswain School where we were pulled out at the time of the Cuban Blockade. We were both transferred to Henrico APA 45, where we immediately left. We were about 2 days out when the Captain told us where we were going. I was concerned that I hadn't been able to tell my Mom first. I obviously wasn't too smart. After Henrico I went to Beachmasters on Coronado. Had a great time there.

Comments: My dad, Pat Clyde, was a Storekeeper 3rd class on the Lenawee between June of 52 and July of 53 when he was honorably discharged. He tells this story:

"I could not remember what dates I was on the ship. I only remember the ship was in dry dock and my first night aboard was miserable because the mosquitoes were so bad, I had to use my mattress cover to wrap up in to try to keep them off me. The next morning the cover was spotted with red dots of my blood making it look like it was designed that way. I don't remember much else besides sleeping in the troop sleeping compartment all by myself, being drained by small vampires. I do not remember ever going to sea on her, just trying to teach aircraft identification on a deck covered with welding and many, many repair crews making more noise than my big mouth could overcome. I finally gave it up for a lost cause."

I am trying to fill in some blanks in the official history (DANFS). If anyone would like to send stories, pictures, etc I would be honored to place them on the ship histories pages that I have on my web site.

Thank you all for your service!

Sincerely,

Shannon Clyde Former RM2/ss 1978-1982, USS LOS ANGELES, SSN-688

Comments: After class A enginemen school in San Diego I was assigned to the USS Lenawee and spent the better part of four years with her. The highlights were riding a typhoon out in the South China Sea, the Tachen Island evacation, two tours in Koera and a six month yard overhaul at Hawaii. My vincent motorcycle was loaded aboard and I spent many hours riding it around the island. The Worst part was the time spent hanging over the side of peter boat #23 dumping my last meal to the fish. Five foot swells and diesel exhaust did me in every time. The G I Bill helped with college and I spent 32 years as a Detroit Diesel Engineer. I fell in love wtih the old Gray Marine the first time I saw her.
