My first ship was an old Oiler, USS Canisteo (AO-99). Keel laid in 1944. Checked aboard on my 27th birthday in 1986.

Didn't know there were ships that old that were operational in'86!
Joined shortly after my 19th birthday in '71, reported aboard the Springfield in the spring of '72, cross decked to the Little Rock in '73, ended my enlistment in '75 as an EN2. Served with a bunch of good folks.
