Signal Gang 1972

May 28, 2017
DE-1067 Signalman gang

L to R: Larry Brix w/ long glass, William Morgan, Ron Neighbors seated on deck, cross legged on desk not a Sig’s, second from right Bossman Steve Buerman, and Phil (Ben) DiBenedetto. Taken forward of the Mack. The weight station is below a half deck down. The plexiglass board behind us was where we wrote the names of each ship and their call sign that was in our proximity in the gulf with grease pencil for quick reference.

I recently received this photo from William Morgan of the signal gang off the coast of VietNam in 1972.  We don’t need no stinking sunscreen!  Good times!
