Comments: I'd love to hear from any of my ol crew mates who served aboard in1948-1950
I was just a kid out of HS and was on the USS Salisbury Sound for
about a year, striking for Fireman and then Damage Controlman.

Was in the R Division and worked in the carpenter shop.

Living now with my Wife Linda near Aspen in the Rocky Mtns.
Hope to hear from someone who's still around.
My name is not on the AV 13's roster but don't know why.
Take care all of you,

Stu Nichols

memories fade through time but those with you are solidified to my core
being. Sincerely, David Edward Moore

Comments: Trying to get in touch with Don Forth who I last saw in Buckner Bay Okinawa in 1961 or 62. He was ships company on the Salisbury Sound -- I was crew on a VP-50 P5M operating out of Iwakuni Japan. Don and I had been stationed together in the helicopter Utility Squadron HU-1 detachment in Oppama Japan in 1954-56 Any news about or from him would be appreciated.

Thank you
