Ronald D. Lehn  BM Seaman  2nd Division 1960-1962 - - Submitted 6/02/07

My name is Ronald D.Lehn I was a BMSN aboard the Estes from 1960 thru 1962. At that time myself and almost the whole assault boat coswains were transfered to the USS Talladega (APA-208) out of Long Beach, CA. I was in the second div. Was also an L.S.O. for flight opps.While in Manila in 1961 we caught a 5 foot shark off the after well deck while the capt.watched us. Op Pony Express in Borneo we slept on the flight deck at night because it was so darn hot. I had a hard time coming from an LST to a Flag ship but I finally did and she turned out to be a good ole girl.

What ever happened to her was she scraped?
Let me know any info you can.
