SEYMOUR FISHMAN YNT 1951

 

 

 

 

I served aboard the USS HYMAN in 1951 and have many great memories.

We were in DESTROYER Division 122, which included the BEATTY, PURDY & BRISTOL.
Our trip around the world included Panama, Hawaii, Wonsan Harbor, Korea, Atami Japan, Yokosuka, Japan, Sasebo, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Colombo, Ras Tanura, Aden, Suez, Naples, Rome, Cannes, Gibraltar and back to Newport.
While on shore bombardment in Wonson Harbor our ship received minor damage from shore batteries in the Harbor and returned to Yokosuka for repairs.
I have sent some photos of this very memorable trip.
 
I served as a Yeoman YNT3 and stay in touch with many shipmates even today.

About JUNIOR

I am a 77 year old retired Northrop-Grumman Corp. Facilities Engineer. I worked at Northrop's Pico Rivera and Palmdale facilities for a total of 13 years, and retired 1n 1995. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for over 54 fantastic years, and we have 3 excellent children (all boys) 7 wonderful grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild. My hobbies are playing the piano (actually, more like learning HOW to play the piano) and restoring a 1937 Plymouth, although sadly, I have made very little progress on it in recent years. I drove road race go-karts until the age of 71. I never grew up, I just got old.
