Comments: I served aboard the Hamul from 1952-1956. When I graduated basic training, USNTC , San Diego in 1952 iwent home on two weeks leave. Upon returning I received orders for the Hamul , but was placed in OGU (Out going Unit) while the ship was in transit from Japan. In about two weeks about 300 of us were loaded in navy buses and taken to the pier. After a couple of days we all reported to the mess deck where serveral admin types woult call each rating: ...gunnersmate, torpedoman, etc. I became a torpedoman striker along with about 5 other recruits. In 1956 I was scheduled to be dischared as a TM-2 when the Hamul got underway for thw Far East. I still had a couple of month to serve so instead of taking me along was transfered to the USS Thraten DD-530. I decided to come back into the navy after a coouple of years in college. I was asigned to the USS Howard W. Gilmore, AS-16 in Key West and later to Charleston. , S.C.While on the Gilmore I converted to JO1 (Journalist) Then to the USAF for another 10-years. I have been retired since 1974.
Comments: Hello, I am trying to find out if anyone here served under my Great Grandfather, Captain Porter Lewis, while he was in command from May of 55 to August of 55. I am curious about what he was like and just to read the stories about his time on the ship. Thanks!
