Comments The 4th of July is approaching. I remember in 1980 that the Grant pulled into England so that the British could celebrate Independance Day with us.It was good liberty visit. A German Destroyer (actually a US Fletcher class that was acquired by Germany) was in port there also. Myself and other Grant crew enjoyed an open Bar in the ship's mess one evening.

Comments I really enjoyed scrolling through the web-site. I enjoyed scrolling through the long list of the grant crew members. Someone did a lot of searching for the crew members. In the ad section I noticed that C.A.K. McDonald, the first Captain of the Gold Crew wrote a book about the lost submarine, Scorpion. I think that I will buy one.

Comments Hello, Im writing to let you know my Dad, GEORGE CHARLES MONROE passed away this past Monday, March 23rd. I wanted to contact you all sooner, but with the business of the unexpected I could not. My dad was at the last reunion you held in Charleston. He talked of you all often.
