    Thank you Mr. Keefer for all the information!

NOTE 2:  I really remember Lt. Furey while I was a deck ape.  He was a "Mustang" and really knew his "stuff".  Tough, but fair.

NOTE 3: I also really remember the Exec. Officer, CDR Woodward.  He was well liked!

All for now.  Please us cmbaltairaks32 [at] for any questions of information.

Best Regards To All.........Charles
