Comments: Shipmate Steven "Spanky" Temple has written a great book about USS Rainier and it's operations in Vietnam from 1967 to 1970 from the viewpoint of a deck seaman and signalman. The book is "We Deliver, You Fire" and it is available from Barnes and Noble and Amazon.

Comments: I reported aboard the Rainier after completing the USAFI Public Information school at Fort Slocum, NY. The Rainier, of course, had no Public Information billet and my arrival did not create one.

I was on the run from San Francisco in November, 19532 and tied to a bouy in Sasebo harbor in December, 1953.

The Rainier returned to the states, Mare Island, Vallejo, CA in June, 1954. I was discharged in August, 1954.

Keywords: With a rating of PN3, I was the enlisted man in charge of the exec's office on the Rainier from 11/52 though 5/53.
