A beauty. Guess they don't make ships like this any longer. The undersea service being nuclear and big units don't need service on station, any longer. Looks like the sort of ships I used to see when my dad and uncles showed off their service photos from WWII. You were an outstanding photographer way back then, too.

They still have sub tenders but they are new ships that can supply the nuclear subs. Our sister ship is still in commission . She is tied up at the sub station in San Diego Harbor.

Surprised to know that they still have tenders. Thanks. One of my uncles was on a LST. He saw lots of ships during convoying in the South Pacific. Another uncle was a CB who built airstrips and temporary harbors, so he saw lots of WWII ships, too. My dad was in the Coast Guard. He was stationed in Nebraska. Yea, I know. Nebraska is not on the coast. Everyone says that. The last year of the war he was at the Daytona Beach air base. He was there when those planes got lost in the Bermuda Triangle. He was never overseas. He always said he was "...lucky...".

Your uncle sort of sounds like my time in the Navy ? I did two years on subs after the time on the tender. After that did a few years on destroy tenders . Most of my time was in Japan & philippines on shore duty. My time at sea for 26 years was a total of 2 years ?
