STANSFIELD, Robert W - Parker, CO 65-68 #1291 mail
*** FTM2 - I came aboard straight out of AN/SPG-49A Fire control Radar school at Mare Island as a FTM-3. I was responsible for the 49A fire control radar associated with the Talos missle system. While aboard I became rated as FTM-2. We were home ported in Yukoska Japan as the flagship of the 7th fleet. I also was assigned to the MK 1 stable element for the 6" guns forward of the bridge and became the gun firing operator during our tours in Vietnam. I spent time lobbing shells into the highlands around DaNang from the harbor. I was also present in the fire control radar room when we shot down our first mig as it flew down from the North. I remember watching the radar screen as the fired Talos come onto the screen and hit the target.
I became a shellback as we crossed the equator. I still have my card. I was also aboard when we were steaming back to the states and was hit by a typhoon. The OK City was sent to sea trials after they installed the missile system aft. She had too much weight topside and almost turned turtle. (As I was told) She was brought back into the shipyard and 22 tons of steel was removed topside. She then had a critical list of 26 degrees I believe. We were hit by a wave broadside during that storm. I was in the radar room below decks and I remember a large tool box jump about a foot into the air and flew 3 feet or so across the deck. My friend, a coxin on the bridge told me that the inclinomoter on the bridge that showed roll (With a bubble) reached 24 1/2 degrees. The ship shuttered for a spell and slowly began to right herself. He said that the officers on the bridge were visibly white. During that storm I believe that the Admirals barge was damaged.
^^^ After I left the Navy I returned to college and became a Mechanical Engineer. I worked for the Boston company of Stone & Webster right after college. After a year or so I went to work for a Denver company called Stearns Rogers. It is now URS Corporation. I was just laid off the first part of December after 35 years. So now, I am doing consulting work in the area.

She was a good ship. I am saddened to know she was sunk as a target ship off of Guam.
