Comments I see that MMCS(SS) Raymond Sheffield is in a "looking for" status in the USS Grant shipmate roster. I do not know if MMCS Sheffield ever reviews this guest book, but I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for coming over to my housing and changing the throw out bearing in my car outside during the winter (bitter cold). He told me "Doc get out of the way and I will take care of this for you". I did not ask him to do this for me--he found out I was going to do the repair myself, and came over to do it for me. Thanks Ray.

Comments The Grant was my first boat; came onboard during the last 3 months of SHYD at Newport News in October 78. As a MT3 learned quickly that you needed to get qualified and stay off the dink list so when we made port calls during DASO and NWAI/NTPI and the ORSE events in the Caribbean we were good to go on liberty. Many thanks to EJ Taylor, Billy Holtz, Joel Sanders, Laverne Hopkins, Dick Dalton, Julio Shelby and my other Blue Crew MTs of Kennedy, McCarthy, Cutno, Pridgen, Bowser, Lesher, Yost, Perrin, Fields, Borer, Syphard. Our Doc John Alexander was the best at keeping us healthy. Cannot forget Johnny Spears to and a few MMs name Steve McBride, and some nucs Lew Crone, Tim Albritton, Tim Lohman - TM Randy Gray.

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.
