Comments: I'm not a Korean War Veteran, however I was stationed aboard USS MAGOFFIN from MAR66 - JAN68. I started out in Deck Department as a Non-Designated Seaman -- 8 months later I transferred to the Navigation Department -- Rate SN/SM3.

Personnel that I seem to remember are SMSN LARSON, SM1 MOON, SM2 SIMMS, QM2 HALL and SN LANE

I would love to hear from old shipmates that were stationed on board the ole lady during my timeframe.

Thank-you. And Good Luck to ALL.

Comments: Our boat group was made up mostly of veteran naval personnel, men who had been part of the amphibious forces in WW-II. This was a highly skilled group. As Boat Group Commander I was privileged to lead this boat group to a level that was graded "outstanding" by the Commander Amphibious Forces, USS Pacific Fleet. We were not called upon for action during the Korean Conflict, but were ready.

Keywords: I was Boat Group Commander aboard USS Magoffin during period 1950-1952. I was called back to active duty in September 1950 from Naval Reserve Div. 9-140 in St. Louis, MO.

Comments: Was an EM2 when I left the Magoffin in 53. Our home port was San Diego. Left for Korea July 10 1952. Trained marines while at Inchon. Took part in mock landing at Wonson. Back to San Diego in Dec. Back to far east in Aug 53. Took marines to Japan, picked up army troops in Pusan and brought them back to San Francisco. Magoffin was a good ship. We have reunions about every 18 months.
