Subject: Crew Member USS Henry Clay

Joined crew during overhaul/conversion in Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Sea
Trials, DASO, patrol from Charleston to Holy Loch 1978.

I met up with Master Chief Russell (COB) when the boat was being cut up at
Charleston Naval Shipyard.  I see Ernie Tayao from time to time at SPAWAR
Charleston.  

I have some good stories about Newman's dog, Boo-Boo Barker, Lt. "Brother"
Strother, and admiral Rickover's midnight snacks on the barge in Portsmouth.

Thanks
Mark Turnbull

To Whom It May Be Concerned:

I am trying to put together some navy stories and pictures into a book for my dad,
Richard Marchbanks (EM on the USS Henry Clay... late 1960's and early 70's?),
for his birthday. I was hoping that maybe someone who knew him could let me
know some of the funny things that happened while at sea (or not at sea), places
you all went, "responsibilities" (as in, "responsibilities include eating a lot of food"),
real responsibilities, strangest/scariest/most uncomfortable part about being at sea/on
a submarine, etc that he would remember/that happened while he was there.  I'd like to
learn a lot more about my dad when he was about my current age from someone else's
point of view.  I think he'd really appreciate having something with all the stories/pictures
from his crew mates/friends.  And, I would really appreciate being able to know more
about my dad.

Thank you for your time!

Sincerely,

Melissa Marchbanks
