mom gathered most of these newspaper clippings from 'The Daily Breeze'
and the 'Los Angeles Times' papers, some articles I picked up in Seattle,
Washington and a few were sent to me from around the country. I received
all kinds of items including ticker tapes, one letter calling me the
next "Gabriel" and flags. How people got my address I'll
never know. These articles give an example of some of the media coverage
the U.S.S. New Jersey enjoyed while I was aboard. The articles covering
the U.S.S. New Jersey's decommissioning with pictures of Captain Peniston
leaving the New Jersey will always be agonizing to me.
Click on each article for a larger copy. Enjoy as these bring back
fond memories of enduring times gone by.
This is my favorite photo with Bob Boling and myself taken by a U.S.
Navy photographer. Of the many he took this is the one circulated
throughout the fleet and newspapers all over the country.
