For a colleague of mine, I am looking for an seaman MM3 Robert Goode (not sure if i have the name right) who served in the engine room on the USS Tolovana between 1956-1958 alongside my colleague. My colleague states him and Goode were best of friends, brother like. My Colleague and Goode got a tattoo at the same time in Hawaii on their arms after they were denied entrance to a bar in Hawaii due to segregation at the time. My colleague want to know if Goode is still alive and how he can contact him.
Any information would be welcome.Please email me or call me at 229-891-5040

We attended the Tolovana reunion in Omaha, NE, October 2017. It was wonderful to reconnect with old shipmates and meet new ones. Hope many of you can join us for the reunion in Washington DC in 2018. Contact for the reunion is Bo Besharse.
I've been searching for shipmate Charles (Chuck) Moran. If anyone has contact information for him, please let me know. Thanks.

The PO taht was hurt in the worst typhoon ever, we called Popeye, that's all i remember about him. We visited him in Hong Kong at hospital, in a full body cast but was well. We left port and he stayed of course but was doing well. I remember Parker threw my "horse w/ no name vynil out the porthole on the way to VN. I roomed w/ Scott Richards in long beach off of magnolia and i hung out at ARMED SERVICES YMCA on magnolia also. Hung out with Larry Smart, David Messenger, our cook PO Lightfoot and doug Hall who married my then girlfriend Margie. Michael Atterbery, Dale Couture, Robert Kilcrease, Jay Romine (from on of the other ships). Had a blast in Long Beach, had a blast at the Grammaphone bar in Japan, don't remember if it was Sasabu or Yokosuka, but it was our bar when the leakey T was in town. Did shipyard for about 6 months before deployment for 8.5 months of VN tour. Remember , PO Jones, Tisdale, Smith, Fletcher and the guys from E division. had i known how much i'd miss the ship and my ship mates, would have stayed!!! It was a great life, glad i was there Jan 27th, 1973 at midnight for the ceasefire which started 28th Jan..
Reach out guys, i'm in TEXAS now, San Antonio and i'm on the roster, join up and send email, come visit, everyone is welcome!!! BENDICIONES
