I remember many a night on the bridge of the USS Beale talking with the bridge of the Eaton Via flashing light. It was the only way an SM could practice his trade. This was during the 1960-1962 years which included the Bay Of Pigs and The Cuban Blockade. Those are remembered times.

I was on the Eaton from 1958-1960. Had a lot of good times. I owe a lot to Tom Andrews, and Brian Kennedy. They taught me more in two months than I learned in a year in the reserves. Calvin Coin, Harold Wickus, "redlead," Dean, Gerry Smith, and Earl Coleman were a few of my shipmates during that time.

My dad, Lloyd Bates, served on the USS Eaton from 43-45 as a Fire controlman, second class, V-6. He passed away in 2003 from a stroke but left his family with many stories about his time at sea and his pride for his country and the US Navy. Does anyone remember him? Aliso Viejo, CA

Served aboard the Eaton from May 1960 until Feb 1961. Flew off the fantail when stepfather passed away. Would love to hear from Francis Thebeido (sp). Played music on the fantail many times. Was in the FT gang right after most of the old gang left after a TB outbreak. Harold Lawson was in the FT gang with me. We went through boot together in Deigo. Later saw him in New Orleans where he managed Hertz rental. From Hodgenville, KY

I joined the Navy in Nov. 65, Uss Eaton DD510 was my first and only ship I served on. I came aboard a SN and was GMG2 when I left in April 66. Went back to Nam in the rivers. I was wounded Nov. 68 with lost of sight in right eye. I retired in 69. I have a great time on her.I am still in touch with Simmie Exum. He retired as a GMGC. I remember the cruise to Nam very well, the kid who died in Tawian,guy going overboard,and the fire on the USS FORRESTAL. Let me hear from some of you guys.

Andy is currently in the hospital after having suffered congestive heart failure. He seems to be better during the daylight hours and to a lesser degree at night, according to his wife Sandi. He also has pneumonia which reportedly is being controlled and recovery is expected. Yesterday, brain scans were conducted. I have no info on these results.

Andy Andrews is one of the most decent human beings that I have ever known. He was an all star signalman, soft ball player and human being. Please take a few moments of your time to say a prayer for him. He surely would have done it for us. Brian Kenedy. QM1
