I was on board the Snook
for over three years from Feb '66 until May '69. During the 1966
West-pac trip we also went to Guam.
Lester Scruggs and Earl Flatt also came aboard for a one day trip to sea.
I was the helmsman when President Park was aboard and got to let him "drive". Pretty exciting stuff for a 19 year old.
do remember being in Yokosuka, we went to Tokyo on the train but had
to take our ships name off our uniform because there were demonstrations
about our visit.
