Comments Hi, I served on the USS Towers from 1961-1963. I came aboard just after she got back from her shakedown cruise in 1961 and was transferred just before she left on her WESTPAC cruise in 1963.

Comments Served aboard the USS Towers during 1967-1967. Wasn't it cool to see the Whidbey twenty-four coming home today! Where was the support and pride during my Navy days? Guess the Viet Nam conflict and the period we were going through did not allow for such patriotic feelings.

Comments Proudly served on the Towers from 1972-1974 in 1st Division and later, Missile Division. What a fabulous crew! Twenty-eight years cannot dim the strong ties that I feel toward my comrades, or the heart-felt gratitude for the ship that brought us through harm's way (on numerous occasions) and safely home.

Comments The Towers never leaves my mind. Pictures on the wall, slides and 8mm film transferred to video recently, I can keep watching her ride the waves and remembering for years to come. I served aboard from May 63 to May 66 FTM2 Missile Radar 3. It was sad to see her sister ship the Buchanan go down but maybe she will join her where they can be together again as in life during the period I served. Frank
