This is photo #3 of 3. You can see what these guys go through while on a destroyer. They must hold on the the deck like they had cats claws. While these guys were getting wet, very wet, we were high and dry on the deck of the Kitty Hawk.
I see on site that you want to know how life on board the USS Sample DD-1048. What was it like in rough seas. Do you remember down at the fishing hole when you make a rock skip over the water,  The USS Sample DD-1048 would do that because of the design of the sonar and the ECM system, but we had a great crew we could handle any task. from k - to Taiwan straits to Okinawa. We had many plane guard ship duties. We had many bad times, once we were in the south and it got so cold we had to rotate the watch in 15 min. intervals even with our cold weather gear on. That was the the coldest I have been in my life.  We had time to play games with the Russian IGS or troller which we called spy ships.
Have a great day will be back . BM3 - Campbell
