The he re-entered the Navy under a USNR program of the Eisenhower Administrations which commissioned him an Ensign. he went on to duty in USS KIDD, USS WHITEHALL and a few other places I do not recall. He is alive and well and now calls central PA home. He doesn't monkey with computers but I would love to meet anyone who sailed with my dad. He finally retrired in 1973 as a LCDR and I now carry on the family tradition as a Cryptologic Chief Petty Officer on the staff of the Commander Second Fleet. I would also really like to know what became of WINSTON? Scrapped or sold? Thanks, Scott D. Kilborn
