Greetings Parks Guys, just attended San Diego (1SD) reunion, saw SN Lee Roy Hubbard first time since 1970, he was just leaving as I was checking in. Whole event went flawlessly, good chow all around and that fabulous San Diego weather 76 degrees year around. It was great to see the whole gang.......

I would like to see the log books of the USS Floyd B Parks DD884 for the 1971 westpac cruise. I have contacted or should I say been contacted by a few shipmates from the cruise and It is somewhat hard to remember others that I was brothers with on that cruise. I would appreciate response at the above email address. Thank you very much.

Just an update to my last posting. For those of us who were aboard the Parks in the spring of 1958, we are known as ATOMIC VETERANS! Truth be known we were Guinea Pigs! Most of us Atomic Vets are dealing with multiple forms of cancers as a result of being exposed to ionizing radiation while the Parks was on station at Operation Hardtack at Eniwetak and Bikini atolls. Unfortunately the list of cancers that are considered attributable to radiation exposure are pretty limited. The approach seems to be if they wait long enough we'll all be dead and then they won't have to deal with us!!! If you were at Hardtack from March 1958 to June 1958 make contact with your county vets service officer, especially if you have had or are dealing with any forms of cancer! My argument is and will continue to be that if agent orange can cause prostate cancer (VFW Quarterly) 30 years after exposure, ionizing radiation exposure can cause it as well!

A huge BZ to all of you who attended the Colorado Springs Reunion and helped to make it a success. We are moving forward with the plans for the 25th Reunion in San Diego. If you haven't been to a reunion yet, this one will be special. Wishing You Fair Winds and Following Seas
