Neverdock was a good ship. I served on her from 1974
to 1978 and we nick named her Neverdock. She was a
fighting machine. I felt safe on her, and I think she
produced a crew that served with pride and

I loved him very much and I am thinking about writing a memoir about him. Any information anyone could give me about him would be so great. His name Was Sydney Thomas Jones, but he also went by Sid and maybe even his last name. I don't know what exactly he sailors went by name wise. He was a machinist mate. He got a Purple Heart. He cut his thumb off during a work accident. My grandfather was right around 6 feet tall with dark brown hair, almost black. His eyes were light light blue in color.

Comments: I served on the Midway from 52 until 54 when the ship left for Washington. Made 2 med cruises. Have photos of the collision with the Kankakee on the 54 Med cruise and of a major flight deck crash around the same time. About 6 planes involved. Some were tossed overboard. Also on the ship when a hurricane tore up the flight deck. Some other of my photos are in Buzz Nau's link to the USS Midway site.
I was in CIC and was an RD 2.
