Gates Mills, Ohio 44040:
While only a few of us were aboard the USS Eaton on May 6th 1956 - when the good ship Eaton collided with the USS Wisconsin - the spirit, the bravery and the creativity of that crew is indicative of the many men who served from WWII throughout the icideous cold war - Cuba - Vietnam - Red Sea encounters and some man made icidents along the way. The USS Eaton was a unique ship with a great crew and one still admired by many!

My Grandfather; Walter G Bisek served as the Commanding Officer on the USS Eaton in 1954 He recently passed and will be honored at Arlington on June 25, 2008. He spoke very highly of his shipmates and his service aboard the USS Eaton. He loved to talk about his navy days. He was very proud to have served in our military. He will be deeply missed, but we will always remember the stories he told us and the pride of he had.

Hi Mates!!
I served on the Eaton from mid 1962-mid 1964, in the after engine room. I have some pictures from our "Med" Cruise, mostly of the "snipes" I served with. It would be great to hear from any of my Mates.

Hi, I live in Columbus, Ohio. I served as EMO from '66 to '68 and I did some video and photography for the 2007 reunion in Norfolk. Now that I finally got out of the dialup and voice phone world, (my son describes me as 'old-school') I really enjoyed all the pictures on this website, and hope to contribute some as well.

For those of you who missed the reunion in Norfolk VA. My condolences. It was fantastic...The organizers, Weiss and Hines as well as many others gave the attendees a real bang up reunion. Never in the field of human endeavor have so many yarns been spun and stories overtold and above all credibility been strained as it was at this reunion. We owe a debt of gratitude to the organizers and we owe it all to our ship,the USS Eaton. Brian Kenedy, QM1 Bonita Springs, FL.

I served on Eaton from August of 1967 through her decommissioning on July 2, 1969, including her Vietnam tour, her return to Norfolk, the mission off Havanna, her reassignment to Philadelphia to train reservists. Following decommissioning, I was assigned as a Ships Sup in the yard at Philadelphia. I work as an attorney and arbitrator and I reside in Clarksville, Maryland. I am attending the upcoming reunion and would enjoy catch-up. Can someone email me the ship's sign in signal flags? Thanx.

I reside in Sharpsburg, Maryland. I was a GM2. I was aboard the USS Eaton from 1955 to 1957. I'm interested in a book that included pictures and ports of call, etc. that was published after the 1957 Mediterranean cruise. I was discharged from the service before the book became available. Anyone having any information on where I could find a copy please let me know. You can email me or contact me by mail at: Dale Lewis Sr. P.O Box 83, Sharpsburg, Maryland. 21782

My father, Edward J. Griffith served on the USS Eaton during WWII. My father was a 1st gunner on the Eaton and that he was the gunner who shot a Kamikazi that was targeting the Captains bridge. He came off the USS Eaton with the ships flag. My father passed away in 1964 from a brain tumor. If anyone has heard any stories about my dad or has pictures of him on ship I would love to share with you.

While aboard was advanced to 1st class Sonarman. The ASW officer was Lt.Crane.We served together at Key West prior to commissioning as instructors.
Will try to make it to the reunion.
