Dear Shipmates,

Many thanks and my greatest appreciation to Peter A. Pizzi (4th Division, 1961-1964) who let me borrow the 1962 Cruise Book. The 1962 Cruise Book is now shown in the web site. Many thanks also, and my greatest appreciation as well to Stephen R. Dall (Mike Division, 1968-1969) for letting me borrow the 1966, 1967, 1968 and 1969 Cruise Books, which are now displayed on the web site. I am very thankful to Mrs. Joan Irwin, wife of the late Commander Kay Irwin, who loaned me the 1960 Cruise Book.

That Cruise Book may also be seen in this web site. Many thanks and appreciation to Robert L. Stutz (Echo Division, 1955-1960) for lending me the 1956-57, 1958 and 1959 Cruise Books. I thank Tom Barbero (Mike Division 1967-1970) for making it possible to show the 1970 Cruise Book on the web site. The 1945, 1951, 1952, 1953 and 1954 Cruise Books are courtesy of The USS SAINT PAUL ASSOCIATION Archives.

I am interested in photos of the Decommissioning (1971) of the Ship photos.
