I served aboard the Rosie from 1972 to 1976 in 1st division. I remember the storms in the Straits of Gibraltar, going thru the hurricane in the middle of the Atlantic. The many Sea details, refueling, and resupplying. I also remember sending the Chaplin over to another ship using the hand line. I also remember the race problems that arose on board during that time as well. It was so cool while working on the sponson decks to watch the Dolphins swimming just ahead of the ships bow.
VF-84 Supply 1972-1975, made 72 cruise, and 1/2 75 cruise,
I served from 74 to my discharge in Aug. 76. I made one Med cruise. Actually met the ship in Philly while in dry dock. I was a CS striker working in the AFT bake shop with CS3 Hotchkiss. Loved it!!
Is there anyone who served in V2 Division in 1956-1957. Please e-mail.
Served 1971-1973 R Division.
