*** BT3 - I have great memories of the Oklahoma City! I came to the Oklahoma City from the USS Preston DD 795, after being busted from BT3 by a BT1 who had transferred from the OK City, to the Preston. I don't recall his name?, but there were two first class petty officers who were transferred from the OK City to the Preston simultaneously, and the other's last name was Driver. Driver was a good guy. After I was busted, with four months left in my enlistment I was then transferred to the OK City. It turned out the first class who busted me had been quite unpopular aboard the OK City, and when I came aboard many B Division sailors looked me up in R&O and greeted me. As it turned out I got involuntarily extended six months due to the Berlin Crisis which gave me time to make one more westpac cruise. I had enrolled and been accepted to start college in CA upon my discharge, and tried to get the extension reversed, but to no avail. I was initially assigned to the forward fireroom, and soon, thanks to friends in the oil shack who learned of my previous experience as Oil King aboard the Preston, got me transferred to the oil shack.

^^^ I retired in 1996 after serving 30 years with the Teamsters Union as truck driver, job steward, organizer, business agent, president of Teamsters Local #515, Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Director of Teamsters Joint Council #87, with jurisdiction over Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi. Two years following my retirement I lost my wife of 40 years and lifelong sweetheart to a fatal and unexpected heart attack. We had just celebrated our fortieth wedding anniversary. We had been raised on the same old Georgia dirt road and neither of us had any memories that didn't include the other. Presently I live out in the country near Chattanooga, on 35 acres. I'm blessed with three children, seven grandchildren, and four, soon to be five, great grand children. I'm writing my first novel. I ride a Harley, and with son, cousins and friends enjoy annual road trips. I enjoy world travel and have visited many foreign countries. I have fond memories of my friends aboard the Oklahoma City, and would love to hear from any and all!

Was on the pre-commissioning crew, Participated in all the initial certifications all the way thru nuclear weapons certification. Went on all of the sea trials including the "60 degree down and still around" incident. I got my dolphins here and received 3 Battle E's on her. Upon leaving the OK City I was stationed at the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station where I served in the Facility maintenance department and became the Facility Manager upon making the rank of TM1/SS prior to finishing my shore duty. In 1993 I went on to serve as the LPO of the Torpedoman Division on the USS Cincinnati SSN 693 and left for the Med the day after reporting to her. Just when I thought I had it made, my Chief was, oh yes, TMCS Pearson. Unbelievable. Halfway thru the Med run I got sick and was medivac'd to Naples.
