Sorry about the previous private post - I didn't mean to do it that way.

My father, Gordon "Nick" Cameron was a Lt. JG on the Ogie Boat from 1964-1967. Unfortunately he passed away at the age of 48 in 1989 from colon cancer.

I was wondering if it was possible to add him to the deceased and/or found members on this site? I know that he would have liked to have been included.

Please let me know and thank you for maintaining this site.

Best,
Bonnie

My Mother, Opal F. McBride, was a passenger on the Oglethorpe en route to join my father, who was a Navy surgeon on Guam. She and the other wives remember the Oglethorpe fondly as the lady who carried them safely to their husbands. Thank you all, because I was born on Guam while they both served there.

I served on board from October 1966 to September 1968. I was in engineering and was assigned to Mike boat 1. Maynard LaFlex was 1 class in charge of all of us until he went to a Tug Boat. At that time I believe the 1 class Master at Arms Smith, was in charge until de-commissioned. I remember some in our group, please excuse spelling. Wingate, Eckler, Deihl, Waugaman, D.C.Curran, Childs. Looking to find picture album with many more names. Many great memories, such as cooking hot dogs in the coffee pot, C Rations and stale cigarettes, little sleep on boat runs. Boy, how the years have slipped by. I remember Lt. JG Herder. Thanks for reading. Ed Hein

I was aboard the Oglethorpe from Aug 47 to Oct 49. Went aboard as Fireman 2nd class, Water Tender striker. When I left I was YN3. Retired from the Navy in Oct 66 as YNC. I can remember a lot of the sailors and officers. Would greatly like to hear from my time aboard. I was 17 in August 1947.
