Monk's article in The Tin Can Sailor entitled "The End of Hostilities". Lt(jg)R.L. Taylor's article in Naval History is entitled "The Commodore's Fateful Command". Some great pictures accompany the articles.

Hi! My daughter brought her laptop to show me the info on the USS Eaton. I served on her from 1941-1945 as a Fire Controlman. My wife, Terry, and I attended the Reunion in Baton Rouge, LA, in 1997. It was a great experience.

My name is Bob Moody and I am the current President of the Conway Veterans Association. Just received my copy of the "Tin Can Sailors" in the mail and was pleasantly surprised to see an article on the USS Eaton DD-510 on the front page. Also very pleased to see a picture of your sister ship the USS Conway DD-507 on page 2 in reference to the same article entitled "The End of Hostilities". We send our best wishes to our brothers from the USS Eaton.

To all shipmates who served aboard when JFK was assinated. This Thanksgiving holiday brought memory of how heavy our hearts were as we left Norfolk on Nov 25 for the Med as our commander and Chief was being laid to rest.One of our missions was to be Ambassadors of good will. I found the people of the countries we saw to be ambassadors to us as they so loved and admired JFK and I know they tried to comfort me and I hope you. We rose above those dark days&successfully returned home.Happy Holidays!

I was FTG2 on Cony (508) and the current editor of the Cony newsletter.
When Eaton and Wisconsin collided, does any body remember how long Eaton was in repair? Wisky was back at sea in 57 days, but 510 had much more damage. For an account of the accident, see Wisconsin's web site usswisconsin.org. And by the way, Wisconsin's deck log stated that she was dead in the water when the collision occured. If anybody remembers when Eaton went back to sea, please email me: jsk508@aol.com.
Thanks

My father, Norman G. Bodner, RD3, served in the navy from 2.21.61 to 2.19.65. At the time of his Honorable Discharge, he was station on the USS Eaton. I wanted to let his shipmates know that he passed away on July 9, 2008 of a massive heart attack. His home was fill with his memories of his time with all of you. It's clear it was the one of the most important times of his life. Best wishes to you all.

Hello Shipmates from New Haven, IL. Got an e-mail from Fred Hinze about the death of Tom Tallant SM2 tonight. I had tried to locate Tom for several years but unable to. I was saddened to get the news. Once we were young and now we are old. So long Tom, wish we could have continued our friedship after returning from Vietnam.
