I'm signing on behalf of my father, Lt. Hector M.Rivas M.D., who was ship's doctor about 1960- 62 likely during the Cuban missile crisis while we were living in Norfolk.
My father in his last days and hours vividly remembered his days aboard ship and his fellow ship mates, but like so many who have sailed before him to calmer seas, passed away in his sleep in Rockville, Maryland September 2016. I still have vivid memories of all the personnel in their crisp whites disembarking on the gangplank the cement dock in Norfolk in the very early 1960s. My dad would always bring us toy match box cars and pennants from his trips! Thank you to all hands that served on the Oglethorpe and were a part of his memories. Thank you all for your service to our country Sincerely, Former Marine Carlos (Carl) Rivas.

Clyde, I’m very glad you shared your good news. Been worried about you ever since I heard about your cancer.
Maybe our paths will cross again in this world. “Live Long and Prosper” ole buddy…. Hope Ruth and I take a trip to Florida this winter.
