Comments: MM3 - Made last cruise back to San Diego for decommissioning. Next duty was on AS 37 at Ballest pt. Watched Gurke being towed out of port to go to Greek navy. Yes I finally became a sailor. Thanks to Chief Pearson and Fast Ed Triniman! Went back to college and got my teaching certificate and have been teaching and coaching since 1980. Still have picture of Gurke as we pulled into San Francisco.

Comments: I am registering for my brother Robert who doesn't have a computer but may in the future get one. Please mail any correspondents to him at the above address. Any e-mails I will pass on to him. He got all excited about the Gurke and what I had found on the net. Had to copy everything and send to him. He would enjoy anything you could mail to him. Thanks, his brother, Larry
