Romie S. Calvert, SN: Aboard 1950. Received letter in July 2003, "I was surprised to hear about the Kennebec again after all these years. My time aboard her was fairly short, but while aboard her I met a few lifelong friends. I went aboard in the Spring of 1950 at Hunters Point in San Francisco. They were cleaning her up for the mothball fleet in San Diego. Most of the crew at that time was busy cleaning her up from stem to stern. I only made one cruise on her to San Diego destroyer base where we finished our job and we were all reassigned, The Korean War broke that Summer so I never knew whether they finished the mothball part. I did hear before I was reassigned to Tokyo, Japan they were going to put her back in the fleet for service. My best buddy, Jeff P. McAlpin, and I did a lot of sandblasting along the main deck. We also were volunteered to paint the main mast clear to the top. I imagine my fingerprints were there for a long time, ha ha! Most of the deck gang was transferred to Tokyo, Japan at Admiral Jay's headquarters Com NavFe Communications Center where we had it pretty good. We were part of the occupation forces until they finally cancelled that. I finished my tour there and was sent back to Treasure Island in San Francisco for discharge. President Truman extended our enlistment at that time because of the war. I probably would have never seen Japan otherwise. Probably won't be able to attend the 2003 reunion.

Roy A. Conklin, RM3. I was on the Kennebec from March of 1944 until September (I think) of 1945 when I was transferred to the Naval Recruiting station in Helena, MT. I was a radioman 3c. Our chief was RM1c Gee, Solon T. who was from MO. There was also a Ross E. Gilstrap from Greenville, SC, and a Johnny D'Arco from Manhattan, NY. I also recall an Aurthur Ironfield from MA and once in a while I have a momentary recollection of others. There was also a Herbert T. Pine, who was the XO and a Mr. Terschak who was the Supply officer on the ship. Is there a list of former shipmates available? Is it true that the crew was awarded medals and/or recognition regarding the capture of the submarine which sunk the Block Island? I left the ship before the awards were made.

Served with Walt Norkus, Joe Brannin, A.J. Garcia, Larry Redmond, Roger Bentley, Jim Craig, Dale Harris, Malcom Kalup, & a host of other "M" Division personnel. After departing Kennebec, was assigned to Honolulu Armed Services Police (HASP) until discharged. Returned to California and worked for Laguna Beach Police Department until obtaining BS and MBA Degrees. Taught college algebra and business mathematics in California Community Colleges for six years. Return to law enforcement and I am currently a Police Lieutenant with the Baldwin Park Police Department. I am also a NAUI certified Scuba Instructor and operate a scuba business from my residence. I have many fond, and not so fond memories of my days Aboard the "Kennemaru", but those are the experiences that contribute to one's character. I noticed that one shipmate has been omitted from the rolls: Walter Douglas Correll III. He was an ICFN and a friend. He resides in the San Diego area at present. Additionally, Lt(jg) Steve Quirk was living in Honolulu in the early 70's and teaching elementary school. I have since lost touch with him. The site is excellent & I would enjoy hearing from some of the old "M" Division crew. Received 03/02/03, "I just got married on Valentine's Day and have been very busy in preparation for the event. Met my wife on a Scuba expedition in Central Asia and had to do battle with the INS and State Department to bring her to California. My life membership dues were placed in the mail to you this morning. I have completed the updated information form and please note the change in my email address.

bluestar.gif - 227 Bytes Neal A. Drummond, FN Aboard 1965-66. Greetings to all former shipmates! I look forward to seeing many of you in October. I reside in a tiny town called Calpine in Northern California. My wife and I settled in this area in 1974. At that time logging was a booming enterprise and I was employed as a timber faller up until 10 years ago. That occupation allowed me to see a lot of beautiful country and I loved the challenge of bringing down some of the giant trees which grow abundantly in this state. For the past 10 years I've been running rock crushers and am currently operating one just east of Truckee, CA, 45 minutes from home. Working on gravel plants also offers a challenge that I enjoy. Living in this beautiful area makes it convenient for me to enjoy my favorite hobbies. We have three children, grown now, two girls and a boy and two beautiful granddaughters. Life is good, knock on wood. Lives in Calpine, CA. updated 08/24/01 Membership EXP 08/02
