Decklog by Meg Kelly on Wednesday, July 04, 2012 at 11:22 My grandfather, Donald J. Kelly of Cambridge MA, served as a gunner on the Saratoga during WWII. We have papers, photos and a menu from Christmas day 1944 saying that turkey was being served to the ship man. Though on the list of deceased shipman my grandfather's name is not included. He passed suddenly in April 1970 and is buried in Cambridge City Cemetery with the Vietnam veterans. He didn't often talk about his experience to my father, though when he did it was often with pride, loyalty and commitment. My father and I are wondering if there can be any information about his service and how we can have him added to the list of the deceased. We have a copy of his discharge papers to prove that he served aboard. To contact us email at meggtkelly@gmail.com

Decklog by grg marsh on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 07:02 I am sorry to inform old shipmates of Senior Master Chief R. L. Oldham that
he passed away on father's day June 17, 2012. I received the news from his
daughter Carol Oldham-Hazel and she asked that all old shipmates be notified of his passing. I am sure he will be missed by all of us he was a great man to serve in the U S Navy with.

Decklog by Mary Williams Rhodes on Wednesday, May 30, 2012 at 10:53 My dad was a Torpedoman 1st Class, aboard the Sara for a time. His name was Herbert "Bill" Williams, and he was from Western Kentucky. I have a photo taken aboard the carrier with his brother, James Thomas (JT) Williams and 6 other crew members, whose names I do not know. The photo was taken Feb/Mar 1946. I have sent a copy of this photo to the U.S.S. Saratoga Association. My dad also served on the USS Yorktown (when it sank) and the USS Lexington. After being on 3 aircraft carriers that were destroyed or severely damaged, he did not re-enlist. His thought was he might not be so lucky the 4th time around. He told my brother and I many stories of his naval days. He watched the movie MIDWAY countless times, telling us different things that happened. The only photos I have are ones a deceased aunt left me. His metals, photo books and momentos where destroyed when my brothers house burnt on Mother's Day, 1993. I have heard that replacement medals and naval records can be obtained. I have completed the military forms 3 times and sent them in over the last few years with no luck. If anyone can offer advice, I would greatly appreciate it. Mary Williams Rhodes. Email: mrhodes123@yahoo.com

Decklog by James Hopkinson on Saturday, May 26, 2012 at 20:21 Hi former Sara Crew
I have been reading some posts on the MMR fire with the sad loss of life. I was on the Sara a few years later fom 1966 -1969, I was an IC electrician and for the 4 years on the Sara I was on the inport fire party as on scene electrican and comunications. We did fight a couple of MMR fires that were not anything like what was just discribed.
Does any one remember the fire we had while in the Philly shipyard. The fire started on the 02 deck upforward on a Friday night and burned undiscovered untill Sunday and it took about 6 to 8 hours or more to put it out. Pumping Jan or Feb Delaware river water that was a couple of degrees above freezing was not fun - waist up burning, waist down freezing. The fire party thought we would would never put the dam fire out because it had spread from closed space to space for two days. After reporting the fire is out and than reporting the fire was on again and again the XO got on the sound power line and started giving me a lot of crap that was not proper phone talking procedures and I told him to shut the f___ up. He than said who is this and I said JH IC3 and I said who the hell are you and he said the XO - and if and when you guys ever put this fire out I want to see you sailor. I did see the XO after the fire and he had not sence of humor. I did keep my crow. Any sailors out there remember this fire that started in a void full of the netting the BM's hung over the side of the ship for painting on the hull?
Good health and calm seas to all.
