21 Jun 2018 - Just discovered the Arlington FB group site. Will post a few photos which I've found...not too many because I mostly shot slides and they've all deteriorated. Doesn't look as though anyone has used the site in a while. Was hoping maybe, some of the corspmen or the Doc from Alabama will check in. I've not talked to any of the crew (except the assoc) since 1968. Even though I don't recognize any names it would be nice to swap stories with some. Thanks for putting up the FB site. Here's hoping... Ron Watson (LtCol USA Ret) Ps: Below says "posting from Canada"...not Wimberley TX (ship's roster says "Waverly" or something like that.)

Hello Fellow Navy men. I was never aboard the Arlington, never seen your ship, we all ways passed in the night I guess, (two ships that pass in the night) thing. We on the Anna Boat will be holding our 50th reunion this coming November 2nd to the 5th. In Jacksonville Fl. I wish all of you the very best in years to come, and think you all for serving.

It's great to read through these comments from those who served on the Arlington. I was only on it for 3 months since it was to be decommissioned. I remember being on deck when the ship was circling the Apollo 11 landing. I think we were doing around 35 knots, and we had to hold on the railing to keep upright. I remember shaking Nixon's hand a couple of times the night he was aboard. I also remember having to sleep during the day behind the curtains in the chapel since my bunk was in a very busy part of the ship. Oh, the memories...
