Comments: I was assigned to Fleet Training Group San Diego in a billet called Officer in Charge, Mobile Transfer Teams. During the tour, Ptarmigan was the last of 3 transfers I had. The transfer to South Korean Navy as ROKNS Shin Song, was transferred in the Seattle area. My team consisted of a similarly assigned engineering officer, plus 7 or 8 appropriate petty officers to help supervise restoration of the ship for transfer. and help with hands on training of the Korean crew members.My rank at the time of the assignment was Lieutenant.
