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.

Does anyone have a Flag that was flown on the USS Tolovana? My father served on AO-64 and I am retiring from the Navy and would like my retirement flag to be from the Tolovana. If anyone is interested please contact me. Thank you.

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
