Decklog by Sammy King Assn Secretary on Tuesday, May 17, 2011 at 18:53 Well Saratoga Shipmates it seems that all my postings here of late have had some sort of bad news and this one is no exception. As you may or may not know, our Association President Brad Senter has been maintain constant contact with NAVSEA in hopes of setting up the "final visit" which NAVSEA had said "was do-able". It seems that NAVSEA has now determined that there cannot be a "final visit" and cited "security and liablity" issues as the reason. We are going to have to build our own "final visit" with the memories that each of us carry. And actually, fellowship mates, in a lot of ways that will be best, for Father Time has taken "his toll on her". She is just a shell of her former self and the sight of her in her present condition is probably not the best way to remember "Our Proud Lady....."

Decklog by Joe Myatt on Sunday, May 15, 2011 at 19:08 I was on the USS Saratoga from Mar.90-Sept 93. I was a cook. In 2008, I came down with a disease called Sarcoidodis that may eventually kill me. I got it from the ship. All evidence leads to that. I have had 3 surgeries so far since 2008. I may have a 4th surgery soon on my left foot. I have had facial paralysis on both sides of my face (it appeared as bells palsy). I need help from any shipmate that may have sarcoidosis just like me from the ship. Please email me back at

He served on the Saratoga in the early to mid 60's and was so proud of it. His dog tags were in his hands as we said good bye. We had included so many pictures in his memorial tape of his time on the ship and the Flemingtom Mo AmVets gave him a wonder military Service. If anyone knew him I wanted to give them clousure also.

I looked in my cruise book and found your pic. Great to meet you. My pic is in these books as well. I was attached to VAQ 137 and AIMD.
So you remember the first Libian war and the Achille Lauro? Oh yeah Diego Garcia?
Anyway, good to chat.

Decklog by Steve Dufort on Thursday, April 14, 2011 at 11:17 Hello Saratogians, My father-in-law George MacCartney Hunter was stationed temporarily on the USS Saratoga (CV-3) during WW-II. He began the war as a gunnery officer assigned to the USS West Virginia (BB-48) at Pearl Harbor. He was aboard her when she was sunk on 7 December 1941. Following that heinous attack he was assigned to an officer's pool awaiting transfer to other seaworthy ships. On December 31, 1941 after begging to get another combat ship, he was given orders for temporary duty and transferred to Saratoga while she was underway. He was assigned to the gunnery department and sailed with her during operations in the Pearl Harbor vicinity and her forays deeper into the Pacific. He was aboard her when she was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine on January 11, 1942. Following the torpedo attack, USS Saratoga retired to Pearl Harbor for damage assessment arriving on January 13. She dry-docked at Pearl until 7 February and on the 9th she departed the "Pacific Paradise" for more extensive repairs in Bremerton, WA. Ensign Hunter remained aboard Saratoga until receiving orders to report to the USS Indiana (BB-58) on 16 April 1942. I have Hunterís war diary and it includes his time on Saratoga. There are names mentioned in the diary that I would like to learn more about. They are: Stu Kowen Mr. Felt Mr. Mills Mr. Ellers I believe they were all officers. If anyone has any information on these gentlemen I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. On this the 60th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, I would like to convey my sincere and deep appreciation to all those who served and are serving today. Bravo Zulu! Steve Dufort
