MessageMy grandfather, Marvin H. Porter, served aboard the USS Randolph from commissioning until ?. Like the guy who signed the guestbook below me, I remember stories about the powered eggs. My grandfather never ate another egg as long as he lived.

MessageMy grandfather, James W. Ginn, was a crew member of the Randolph during WWII. He doesn't speak much of the war. Mainly just funny stories about powdered eggs and things of that nature. I appreciate and admire him above all men that I have ever met. It wasn't until a few years ago that I learned of the things he must have seen and felt while at sea. I can't imagine it. Kamikazes and nowhere to run. He has never wanted his family to try to imagine it. And I love him dearly for that.

He now lives in Hartwell, Georgia, with his wife Rachel. They have 5 children and 15 grandchildren.

MessageSir,
My wife is caring for a former Naval Commander or Lt. Commander, named George Ozrow Baker. His memory isn't too good but there is plenty of pictures and awards. There is no family in Sarasota ,Florida where he now lives. We herd of a nephew in Texas some where, other than that no one. His eyes did light up when my wife took him a picture of the Randolph I took off the web site. We would like to try to talk with him if we could find something that might
spark a memory. He has good days and bad days. On the good ones he tries to talk and on really good days they can have a conversation .He now 96. He served from 1929-1959. He also served aboard the USS Plunkett. Maybe someone out there might help him bring back a good day or two again.
Thanks Stan and Darlene Mietus

MessageTom Generous. Was AT3 in VAW-12, Detachment 36, in CVG-7, aboard Randolph
CVA-15, June 1958-March 1959. Would love to hear from the other twidgets:
Billy W., CPO Simon, Mike C., Chris N., Paul H., George L., and AE Larry H.
Saw Mr. Churchill from very close. May have seen the cold cat-shot J.
Paul Harrison is asking about, but didn't know the pilot and remember
nothing else. Do recall other tragedies and near-misses. Two hilarious
moments: (1) A-4D heading for starboard side, pilot ejected and went
horizontal when plane tipped in the catwalk, and (2) AD-5N rolling over the
fantail when plane captain forgot the chocks. <>,
