Comments Former GMM3 aboard Towers just after the ship returned from Hong Kong in the early 80's. Was onboard during the engine room fire and KAL 007 search. Absolutely the best years of my Navy career were spent on Towers. Transferred to USS Truxtun CGN-35, commissioned USS Barry DDG-52. Got out of the Navy for eight years. Enlisted again from 2002-2008 to finish up my career with the Seabees. Retired as GM1(SCW/SW) Woods.

Comments I'm sorry to inform you of the passing of my brother, CAPT Lawrence V. Fairchild, USN (Ret). He served as Commanding Officer of USS Towers during the period 1983-85. He died of natural causes at his residence in Chula Vista, CA on March 3, 2004. During our conversations Larry indicated to me that his time aboard USS Towers represented a high point in his naval career. Because of this, I'm attempting to arrange with the Navy to have his ashes scattered over the site of the Towers sinking. I hope this is not inappropriate. Please contact me at afairchild@wi.rr.com if you have any comments or questions. Thanks.
