Comments: Tours to Iwakuni, Hong Kong as station ship. I was supposed to have been on the plane that was jumped by the MIG. I don't know why things were changed.

Then on to Alaska to take the supply ship to Point Barrow. We sat in some harbor south of the Artic Circle while we flew flights to watch the ice flows.

We attracted the attention of Moscow Molly.

Our Captain was Capt Allen . Would love to hear from anyone on board during that time.
