Message"E" Division, EM2. Watchstander in Firerooms/Turbine Generator. Worked out of Lighting Shop and Battery Locker.
Came aboard 12/67 after spending a year in Vietnam on LST-1032.
Randolph spent a lot of time in the Pensacola area, serving as landing platform for future Naval Aviators. A trip to Saint Thomas. Then Operation Springboard...Crossing the line...Shellback...trip to Rio!
On our return to Norfolk, we stopped in Barbados for a booze run. Then ship received word that we were going to be decommissioned. Returned to Norfolk, then a trip to Boston Naval Yard for a cold winter of closing the ship up, for its final destination. This was the winter of 68 and Jan/Feb of 1969.
I left the Randolph in February, orders were cut for a lot of us to report to the USS Yorktown CVS-10 in Norfolk.
Randolph was a good ship, made some great friends, had some good Liberty.
I only stayed on the Yorktown till November 1969, then my enlistment ended!

MessageI would like to pay tribute to all those who served in the Armed Forces. My father served in the US Army in both WWII and Korea. Many service personnel gave their lives, not just to keep America free, but to give freedom back to others throughout the world.

I mainly would like to pay tribute to a great man who served on the Randolph, Manfred Bleiker, who is a good friend of mine.

God bless all who served, gave their lives and are still serving in the military.
