ROW "G" June 20, 2013 of the Suisun Bay Reserve Fleet
These are "OUR GIRLS". All the other oilers are gone.
...
The three 143's are the surviving UNREP ships with STEAM PROPULSION, PUMPS & DECK GEAR.


The word "OUR GIRLS" applies to all sailors who have served aboard them.
Capt. Patrick Moloney has served on all three. I, the webmaster, was on the Kawishiwi Commissioning Crew.
