A belated Happy birthday Paul! I am so pleased that I found your fantastic site a few years ago, and love the updates and the continued high quality of the pages. I lost all of my FAVORITE PLACES last week, when a young man updated my system. Would you again send me the "hidden crew roster." I continue to hope to find my friends from 1945/46 on the list.
By the way I bought the book, and when I copied some of the pages re the battles of Okinawa and Japan, my kids (32-48) asked me to write down my memories of those days at sea. One of the events they enjoyed was my recounting the day that an earthquake hit Bremerton, Washington, while the Oakland was in dry dock. Abandon ship I heard while sacked out in my berth in the after gyro room...I got topside in one hell of a hurry. I think I'm the only sailor who abandoned ship in a dry dock and went to general quoters in the Panama canal....the U.S.S. Intrebid CV11 ran hard a ground with a pilot aboard.
Again, thanks for the great job you are doing. I will have my 76th birthday on September 23rd.
Warm regards, Adrian W. Smith EM 2C
