To any one interested. We in Maine at USS Maine base, SubVets, ahve a major push to get the USS Gudgeon back to Maine as a sub memorial. There are teo of these tang class still in operation. Any one interested in any way shape or form with any type of help would be greatly appriciated. Like the USS Razorback we may be able to bring her back under her own power. I am treasurer for the Submarine Memorial. If every ex-crew member or any else, chipped in some monetary amout, $1.00, $5.00, $20.00 what ever it would all help. You would be honerary crew members. What a great place to have a reunion and and a bunk when in the area. Thanks, Mike seacaptainx@yahoo.com

Ahoy shipmates!

I served on the USS Indianpolis in '44 when we got torpedoed and went down with over 800 men. Sharks took most of us. I have learned to live with no legs and no head. I get around on a motorized skateboard - but she's fast, man!

Anyway, I'm looking for a submarine to buy. Must be big and black and go down from time to time. Strong and black - like my coffee. A Whisky or Julliet class nuke would be good. Any suggestions?

Needs a hold for around 1000 kilos of heavy, grade-a plutonium and crack cocaine.

Ahaarrr! Let me, know, me hearties!

Recently I found a coffee mug from the Entemedor (gold rim, Devil Ray/torpedo logo) in a box of old things. When I origionally found it, I was doing a demolition of an old Knights of Columbus hall in Portsmouth, NH in 1995. SOmehow it ended up in a dumpster and I rescued it (it makes a *great* coffee cup!)

If any of the crew from the SS340 could give me an e-mail... tilton@wf.net ... I'd be more than happy to ship it to you if you think it's worth while. I'd much rather see it go back "home" then sit on my desk.

We have some great crew aboard, and hope to include our WWll Silver Star Award COB Bates. Sablefish consistantly won the Battle Efficiency "E", won the Duncan Hines Award for having the best commissary in the Atlantic Fleet, and starred in the made for TV documentary "See it now", with Edward R.

Wanted to do something special with my young life. It turned out special but not the way I planned. What become special was all the men, young men, shipmates, friends, and unforgettable people that all made a difference in a young boy's making. The trips, the responabilities, the catastrophes, the hard work, the loyalty, all made me well aware of the bonds that are created by and in certain areas of life.Those bonds are still intact today, almost 45years later. They are not as clear but they are there.The pride I still feel today about serving on the U.S.S.PIPER(SS409)isno less than it was back then. I want to thank every shipmate that I served with for being part of my life then and now.

THANK YOU

I would like to hear from any one of my shipmates of so long ago. Have rached the time in my life that I think of the good and hard times aboard both subs. I made two runs on the Washington and one wespak run on the Charr. I was also a Plank owner of the Washington.

I hope all is well and life has been good for all of you. Good Bless and hope to hear from anyone that sees this message.

Are any of you guy's interested in having a reunion? Any one of the Three Boats I served on. Mail me and I will see how many are interested. Depending on what Boat will determine what location for the reunion. Does anyone have contacts to get pictures of the Capitaine and Cobbler as they are today.The Capitaine was given to Italy and the Cobbler was given to Turkey. If you have any information if they are still in commission or how to contact them, let me know.
