I am historian for USS Kawishiwi AO-146 which is now moored in the Suisun Bay Reserve Fleet. Kawishiwi was primary logistics support and secondary recovery for your splash down in the pacific.
I have but two questions. Was the three of you aware of Kawishiwi being present in the area? If so, what can you remember about Kawishiwi or did you see it?
It would be real nice if I could write any of your memories in Kawishiwi’s history.
Thanks for taking that wonderful but troubled
ride. We will never
