Re: Re: New Picture

I remember LT. Rosenburg as a full LT. He might have made LT. while I was on board, I can't remember.
Also can't remember who requalified me on Sea Robin. I think it was pretty quick because I came off another Portsmouth boat just like her.

Re: Re: Re: New Picture

Was LT Sminkey the CHENG then?

Followed by Rosenburg, Stoodt?

Re: Re: Re: Re: New Picture

I believe you have it right. LT. Sminkey was Eng when I came aboard and in the Med in 63. I'm pretty sure Rosenburg relieved him. I know Stoodt was Eng in the yard at Portsmouth because he and the Ship's Superintendent didn't get along. I was in A Gang and got in the middle of that mess a couple of times. Things get a little confusing to me sometimes. I served on 5 boats.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: New Picture


According to an on-line bio I just read, Sminkey left Sea Robin in Jan 1963 just as you left for the MED.

I wonder who relieved him as CHENG?


Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: New Picture

I don't think that's right. I believe Lt. Sminkey qualified me on the way back from the May of 63, but I wouldn't want to bet my life on it.I do know it wasn't Lt. Rosenberg. There were a couple of others that qualified with me. I don't remember who they were.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: New Picture

I`m going to give it a shot,I think your looking for LT. Schriver.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: New Picture

Ed, I think you win the prize.

LT Norm Shriver

I've heard he was a nice guy, but I'm pretty sure he had left before I arrived.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: New Picture

LT. Shriver made the 63 med trip with us but I can`t remember when he left the boat.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: New Picture

I think you've got it. It was Lt. Shriver. He was the one who gualified me on the way back from the med. I knew the otther name wasn't quite right but couldn't remember the right one. He was a nice guy.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: New Picture

Yup, I believe it was Shriver. I told you I had old timers disease, or is it C.R.S.
