My wife Anne and I would like to say "WELL DONE" to all those responsible for organizing the reunion at Cape May. We had a wonderful time. The accomodations were great. The reception by the personnel at the Base could not have been nicer. For me it had even greater appeal, in that it was forty-nine years ago when I reported to Cape May for Boot Camp - October 12th, 1954. Many changes since then. We look forward to the next reunion wherever it may be held.

Really enjoy seeing the names of others I served with. Especially Mike Carmody who worked with me in the EM shop. Remember the trip to St. Johns and the summer in the Caribbean. I'll never forget the stop in San Juan and the initiation after crossing the equator. Good times and great memories.
Retired at EECEN in 1997 and now work for the Cape May - Lewes Ferry. Best wishes to all my old shipmates.

I joined the CG in April of 1970. I completed boot camp at CAPE MAY, NJ and Radioman Class A School on Governors Island. I was on "THE ROCK" for a little over a year (mostly oceanographic patrols up and down the east coast). I served the remainder of my hitch at the USCG Search and Rescue Air Station at Floyd Bennet Field. Honorably discharged in 1974 and have been living in Connecticut since.

Came aboard the "Rock" right out of Cape May RECTRACEN Company Uniform 2. Made a few Bomex cruises, as well as EASTROPAC 3, and the yard at Colon in the Panama Canal Zone. Had a lot of good times on that trip. I joined the Army Reserve in 1975 while living in Florida, and am back on Active Duty serving as a Multifunctional Logistician Master Sergeant (E8), right now (Jan 2003) in Central Asia. I hope to retire in 2008 with 38 years of service.

I was only on board Rockaway for a year, 1967. During the time, she was serving as an oceanographic ship and was berthed at Base St. George at the up-river tip of Staten Island. Our family was new; my wife Jeannie and I had been married for less than a year, and she was pregnant as we moved down from Portland, Maine where I had been an engineer on a sister-ship, the Cook Inlet. (This was planned as a short assignment before I was to go to oceanography post-graduate school,which turned out to be ocean engineering, the subject of a little story farther on. I sailed as her First Lieutenant/Gunnery Officer and as assistant oceanography officer.) We lived on Governors' Island, still in transition from Army ownership -- our first and only time in government quarters in a 30-year career -- which had its pros and cons. Overall, it was very good for us at the time, especially considering the security of the place and the length of Rockaway's cruises.

I recall one in particular. We had just been out for a week, not far from New York, but far enough to allow Jeannie to have our first of five children alone. (The story goes that she saw the ship off, took the ferry back to Manhattan, then to Governor's Island to get things ready, then back across the two ferries again to give birth at Staten Island's Baley Seaton Marine Hospital.) Another week, and we were out again for three-months, through the Panama Canal, and down the coast of South America, and up again, as far as El Salvador, as part of an international oceanographic effort to get an overview of the Eastern Tropical Pacific ("EASTROPAC",) to allow better understanding of events like El Nino. It was long and interesting, and we made port stops all the way up and down the coast, a learning experience for all on board.

One of the challenges (aggravations) of this was coming to grips with the conflict of expectations that was built into the way we tried to operate. This was at a time when the Coast G

I looked at the photos from the reunion and remembered Jack Serany and Allen Detwiler!

Perhaps there may be some success in locating/contacting more of the guys who were stationed on the Rockaway.

There are many memories from my time on the Rockaway that will always be with me, especially a particularly nasty storm on one of the weather patrols.

I still have some old photos of the Smith Voyager rescue if anyone remembers that.

This is A great web site. I spotted a number of people I remember. Thanks
I have a number of photos I took while aboard the Rock, but too many to E-mail. I would like to send prints to the group. I also have some film footage I have transfered to tape.
I would like to hear from some one about the above. I will not be able to attend the reunion
I wish I could, Good luck with it.

Reported from boot camp as my first assigment. Served in deck dept until I was assigned as a storekeepper striker, then assigned to e-divison as log office SK. Does any one remember the charlie patrol we pulled in Dec of 58 (made it back the day before xmas) when we hit some pretty heavy seas and came back with heavy damage including damaged 5" mount, no life lines and the loss of a couple of life boats? It sure has stuck in my mind. I have served on 2 cutters since then but have never had a ride like that one. Looking forward to reunion.

Many memories of her. Especially of going fishing in Gitmo and someone fired a shot over the outboard board we were in. Man at the pier said the Cubans did that to scare people. He was right...I was scared.
Remember the Hatuey beer in the white hat club and the German Destroyer that was there while we were. Still have a few pictures of that era.
