The picture I used is from my service later on Governor's Island in 1976.
I served on the Sherman as a Fireman out of "Sunny" Cape May, NJ Boot Camp and reported to the ship in 1972 while it was stationed in Boston. Went on several Ocean Station Bravo trips, and one trip to GITMO. I was in the Engineering group. I worked with Rat, Saint, lot's of nicknames then and was often called BJ. We called our First Class Supervior Fred (as in Fred Flintstone....yeah that is right) His real name was Norman Lidstone. We did have some fun and some serious things happen. I'll spare you the sea stories for now, but will be glad to relate if you want sometime.
