IMPORTANT INFORMATION    We do not have personal records of those who served aboard our ship.  If you wish to contact  shipmates who might have known the crew member  in whom you are interested,  please send your name and address or phone number and the name of the crew member and any information you have about them  to  LesPierce1@charter.net.   Our editors, Les & Mary Jo Pierce, will  include your request in the next issue of our publication, The Colorado Lookout,  which is sent to over 600  members.  Our members can then contact you if they knew the person.   80% of our shipmate members do not use email  so  your address or phone number is important so they can contact you.  You can also find valuable searching information through the Naval Historical Center link shown below.
