Comments: I was aboard the USS Weiss from mid-year 1965 until mid-year 1968, continuously for those 3 years. I was an E-5, or 2nd class Electrician and also the Engineering Log Room Yeoman. I have a great memory for the men I served with. Also, I graduated college after my service with very high honors. I don't recognize one name on your list during that time period, although I remember many of the 135 men and officers who served during that time on the 330' Weiss.

Comments: It is with sad regret that I am posting the passing of Duane "Gene" Saunders, age 76, on 3/25/2008. I had the privilage of serving with Gene on board the "Clymer" for a brief time, but really got to know him on the Black River Falls Fire Dept and Rescue squad. I made many "runs" with "Pa" as he was affectionately called here. We had a lot of stories to tell and some we kept between ourselves. Of course, Gene had many more than I, since he retired with 20 years in the Navy.
He will be greatly missed by family, many friends,and shipmates. Godspeed Gene
