MessageI was aboard the Randolph from the time of re-commissioning(July 1953) till October of 1955. I was a radiomen 3rd class "OR" division.
I have read a lot about the Randolph but no one ever mentions how the ship sailed into hurricane Carol in 1954 off the coast of Virginia. Captain Quackenbush, I heard, was shipped off to Alaska after that mistake. Does the Navy want to hide this fact since the ship was very badly damaged, going into dry dock for extensive repairs.
Please contact me if you were aboard during that hurricane and let me know it wasn't just a dream.

MessageMy father was Gerald "Jerry" Palmer (he passed in 2000), I don't have dates but he served on the Randolph I think from 1957-1958ish. All I know is he worked on planes. He loved motorcycles and dabbled in photography and SCUBA. I would love to know more about his time on the ship. I have the Med. book and photos and other items from his travels. He later went to Alabama for awhile. His hometown was Menasha, Wis.

I remember one safety tidbit/story he would tell us about. Never use the ejection seat in the plane under the deck.

MessageI served in X Division, between 65 thru 69, looking for Paterson, Ahelert, O'Shay, John Haggard, was our Division Officer. I use to box in the smokers at sea, and enjoyed that very much. John Sheldon; from Washington D.C. use to work with me. There use to be a cook on board, Hawthorne was pretty good in the ring. Does anyone remember us picking up scottish fishermen, when their boat got in trouble? They use to have a 5 cent coke machine outside the infermary, it would dispense coke in a small paper cup. And those wonderful, boring fog foam, watch stations.
