"There are good ships and wood ships, ships that sail the sea,
but the best ships are friendships, may they always be!" -Irish Proverb

Personal & Official

These photos were recently donated to our Association by Michael's son Jeff and daughter-in-law, Jill. Michael was assigned to EX Division during his tour on Toledo from April 1952 through June 1954. As you will see, he covered the ship's visit to Portland Oregon's Rose Festival. These photos are "Official Photograph U. S. Navy" and our originals are so marked as well as some are personal copies of shots he made unofficially. They are shown here unmarked because it is stamped on the back and in no particular order.
