Rate/Rank:  SN
Division:  3rd division and then I think X division

Came to the ship straight from boot camp. Assigned 3rd div, but was transferred by Ship's Secretary CWO Cummings to play basketball in his division and handle the recreational locker and make the ship's plaque. Also played on ship' team and remember we had a big game against the USS Annapolis team which I think we won. Loved going to Pearl Harbor, Yokosuka and Hong Kong and remember chasing a British sailor thru the streets of Hong Kong after he ripped us off in a bar (which he didn't end up getting away with). Does anyone remember the Bingo night being delayed because I was watching the movie and couldn't hear them paging me?
