Thank you for your help.
I want to get a call out to anyone with any other info than can add history or clarity.
If you have means to do that, or let others know this exists now...
it would be appreciated.
Have found him in a Cruise book on your site from 1957
Last Inspection -- Bainbridge, MD - 1959
On my site...
if you are not on high-speed, be patient.
It's graphic heavy, but everyone so far loves it so far.

I have found a few interesting items in my fathers items.
3 slides from the voyage to Enewetok, and Howard T. Moore, Radioman Chief USS ESTES personal hand written log book of travels and ports.
According to the log...In Dec 48 he was transferred from USS Crescent to 'shore duty' at AEC Ceder Ridge facility and spent most time there, more deeply involved in the planning and strategy stages while ESTES was being refit at Hunters Point. He continued to report to Cedar Ridge for around 2 years as best I can tell.ie:
His log lists all movement in an' in' & 'out' format for most of his career
I have ALL Ship movements in that form order until April Fools Day 1952 Gotta love the sense of humor in that one!
His log stops cold on that date but he did not retire until 1963 to 10 more years as active reserve until 1969.
He stayed with the ship via San Francisco (T.I.) and I am trying to determine when his last ship-board movements may have been.
It is a small brown flip style notebook and they are line-item listed for EVERY movement.
A photo from 1954 shows him with and 3 strips on his lower sleeve.
With warm regards on this Independence Day.
