Johnson, Cone William (Bill) 
PHM 2/c, (3/46-6/46) Sick Bay, 1506 Highland Park Rd., Denton, TX. 76205, I was the hospital corpsman and, with no doctor, the chief medical authority. On one occasion, I had to temporarily relieve the skipper of command. We made many trips from Shanghai to Hulata ferrying Chinese Nationalist troops to fight ChiComs and feudal lords. Our view of Manchuria was bleak: red clay and no trees. Just after our last trip, a similar ship was sunk at dockside, which halted our runs and, shortly after, we were stopped by a Russian man-of-war, boarded and searched by filthy, stinking Russian sailors, who were disappointed not to find a ship full of Chinese troops. I left the ship in Japan[05/16/11]

I was part of the commissioning in New Orleans in March of 1968. We brought the ship through the Panama Canal to San Diego for training and outfitting before sailing to Vietnam. It was a thirty day trip to Vietnam and after ten months in the Mekong River we were relieved and sailed to Sasebo Japan. I had orders to the USS John A Bole so left the ship and arrived back in San Diego on Mother's Day 1969. I doubt that I will be able to travel from San Diego but it would be interesting to know who remains from the commissioning crew. Thanks to you for putting this event together.  RMC, USN, RET  [03/02/18]
