I served on board as the only machinist from '68-'69. I broke under the stress and got a medical (Honorable) discharge in October of '69. We were stationed in Norfolk, Virginia at the time! I finally got the mental health help I needed by 1975-1984. Treatment ended in a sex reassignment surgery that was diagnosed as medically necessary. It turned out that I was the first in my state (IOWA) and insurance paid for it! My immediate superior drove me to the original breakdown while on board. He was fresh out of Viet Nam and had more decorations than the ship had. I still have 8mm movies from my time on board and some fond memories! Now I am retired and living alone in my own home here in Iowa! Thank you for allowing me to post and say Hi.

I served on the USS Harold J. Ellison from December 1970 to September 16, 1974. I enjoyed my years of service while on the Ellison. Great crew and great times while serving. Many great memories while in Norfolk, VA. Philadelphia, PA. Ft. Lauderdale and Mayport, Florida, Hoboken, NJ. and East Boston, MA. Got to travel and see places that I would've probably would've never seen! Just missed the MED Cruise when I reported to the Ellison in Norfolk, VA in December 1970

I am Katie Jones by name currently living in Las Vagas, USA.. Am writing this letter because am really grateful for what Mr Austin George did for me and my family, when I thought there was no hope he came and make a way for me and my family by lending us loan, at a very low interest rate of 2%. I never thought that there are still God sent and genuine loan lenders on the internet but to my greatest surprise i got my loan without wasting much time so if you are out there looking for a loan of any amount i would like to recommend you to Mr Austin George the Managing director of Austin Loan Company because he is a God sent man that can change your life forever.... So if you really want to make a better life without any fund scarcity.... I would advise you to get in touch with him through this e-mail below

My father, Raymond Henry Harper was a fire controlman aboard the Happy Jack and a plank owner. I don't know how long he served on it as that was before my time. He met my mother on a cruise to Casco Bay Maine and it just might have been on the Ellison. He had fond memories of his service aboard the Happy Jack and was a dyed in the wool Tin Can Sailor for the rest of his life. He did 23 active years in the Navy and another 7 in the Reserves finally retiring as a full Lieutenant. He also served on the Strong, Valley Forge, Grand Canyon and Little Rock alternating between ships and shore duty teaching at fire control schools. One of his Happy Jack shipmates, Bob Glasgow was a life long friend and a pseudo-uncle to me as a boy. My dad was NAVY to the core and my hero. He took his final voyage a week after his 91st birthday in 2013. I looked at all the pictures on the website hoping to spot a young pop in one of them to no avail... yet I know he MUST have been in that brewery tour picture as he sure did lo
