I was on the ship from Dec. 81 to decommissioning. It was the best and worst time of my life. Two west-pacs, a tiger cruise and a trip to Oregon and Washington state stand out. Came on board an E2 made E3 three times and got out an E1! Chief Cain and HT1 Kyllo I WILL find you weasels one of these days, I'm not scared of you anymore! I am sending out emails to everyone and hope that we can all get together sometime.

I was aboard between 1981-1982. She was getting in pretty bad shape at that time. We were fixing on her all the time.
When I got out of the Navy, I went to work for a scrap yard. Welding, metal cutting, and than crane operator.
In 1990 I opened my own recycling center(fancy name for scrap yard).
I didn't think of looking up the USS thomaston LSD 28 on the internet till now. I was looking for pictures to show my son. He's thinking about joining the Navy.
