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.

I 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.
