Comments: I'm not sure if any records are kept on this page for those who served on each vessel, but I thought I would announce that my father, Ira Thurman Land (honorably discharged as Quartermaster 3rd Class), passed away on March 11, 2016 at the age of 83. He served on the USS Telfair from May to December 1951, before transferring to the USS Calvert (AP32).

He only started telling me stories about his naval years in the last few years of his life as he began to battle cancer. If there is anyone here that knew him, I would appreciate hearing any stories you might have about him.

Ira was cremated, and his ashes were delivered to the US Navy and are due to be scattered in the Atlantic Ocean sometime soon.

Comments: Came up to Hunters Point, San Francisco Sept 1950.
The ship was just being put back into comission from
use from WWII. All the P-boats were sitting on the
dock. We worked to get the ship squared away and
were steaming to San Diego Halloween night. We
practised boat drills for awhile, loaded I think
Marines, crossed the International Date Line
Christmas and arrived in Kobe on the 9th of January
1951. I served on the Telfair for two years and when
the ship was headed back for a third trip I chose to
get a new billet and was sent to Kodiak for my final
year in the Navy. I loved Kodiak and working on
smaller ships. Richard James Henry came wth me from
Engineman School at the lakes, to Coranado, to the
Telfair and to Kodiak.

Keywords: Anyone on the Telfair in 1957 remember a trip to the Saudi Arabia area with the 3rd Marine division aboard the USS Telfair? I have a friend I am writing a tribute about. His name is Sgt. John wolter, USMC and was in Hotel co, 3-3, 3rd Marine Division aboard the Telfair in 1957. Can anyone tell me about debarkation from Okinawa or the trip to the Persian Gulf area in 1957, early in the year I believe. It was a 6 month float.

Comments: My Daddy sereved on the Telfair during the Korean war. He talks about how the ship was there to get out Americans and they didn't think the ship would ever make it home. I am not sure of the exact year. My Dad is Joe Edward Bell. This year he will be 70. I am trying to find things to put in a memory book for him. All the time we were growing up he never would talk about the war. He is just now starting to share with us. He thought he was protecting his family from the ugly side of war by keeping all to himself. I think he was a brave man for what he did for our country and a great man for what he did for his family. If you have any information on him or can direct me in the direction to find out more about him and the men he served with I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you,
