I was a Sonar Technician 1st Class in US Navy from 1978-1985. My uncle, Bob Karpola, served aboard Eaton at time of collision with Wisconsin. He was a Gunners Mate. He is alive and well(for an old salt) and lives outside Chicago. Anyone know him???

Shoals, Indiana. I served aboard from 1960-63. I remember the bay of pigs. Had a lot of great times and made a lot of freinds. I was trying to think of the other ships in our task force. I remember the Murrey, Beale, can't remember the rest. I know there were seven destroyers.

Hi . . . I've been busy moving from Utah to Massachusetts. Hope everything is ship shape with everybody. I was thinking about the Cruise Book. I wonder if there are still copies of it out there and if anybody would make the effort to scan it into digital format? I wish that I had purchased it . . . but I couldn't afford it at the time. Sn pay you know.
I'm still looking for Rob Moody the Corpman striker . I think he left the Navy after we returned from Asia. If anyone has any info

Thank You Leon and Merv. It is great to see the USS Eaton Website alive, activated and back in operation. Over the last few years it has been a great means of keeping in touch and finding new "old" friends after more than 50 years. Best wishes. Spo

I served aboard the Eaton from 1966-1968 and went on the West PAC Cruise to View Nam. I hold many great memories of the times aboard the Eaton. It is strange how after all these years we have also become a Band of Brothers. Thank you Merv for taking over the web site and for your efforts to keep us all together.

Hello Shipmates,
I've took over the website from Lee Freeman. Lee did not have time to do any updates, etc. I will have a limited amount of time myself. Lee also had trouble with robots adding comments to old guestbook and no way of editing comments before they went on line. So whenever you type your comments in the guest book, make sure that you type in the security code. This keeps robots from adding junk to guestbook. I just wanted to put the guestbook back on-line so we can all stay in touch. Let's see what happens!
Thanks, Merv Terrell (RM3, 66-67)
