Comments: Hi,

My Father Paul Richard Egloff served on the USS New
Jersey during the Korean War. He was on it when the
peace treaty was signed. I was hoping someone served
with him and knew him back then. He passed away in
1991 unexpectedly and I never really knew too much of
his experiences on the USS New Jersey. Any information
would be a nice surprise. Please feel free to email if
you have any information.

Comments: I worked in the S3 Division,USS New Jersey BB 62(Laundry Room)Night Shift from 1952 untill l955.Then the Tailor shop
for the remainder of my tour, May 28th 1956 was discharged.
My Battle station was on a 40mm gun mount, during the Korean conflict.
My duty station, was driving a military vehicle,on base in Norfolk,while the ship was in port, for the military officers.
While we were in port in Spain I drove to one of the Airports to pick up mail for the crew.
During the Koren War I remember when a F4-U got shot down and our Helicopter picked up the Pilot and got him on board the USS New Jersey before
a USS Destroyer could get to him.I think we set a
record in that action.
For me it was some experiance to get 3/4 around the world on board the USS New Jersey.A Duty I was proud to serve for the United States of America.
