Joe A. Rosso  Seaman Aprentice 2nd Division 1966-1967 - - Submitted 11/7/09

I was on board the USS Estes from 01-66 until March or April of 67, I was 17 my dad signed for me to enlist, I ran across the Cruise Book you donated and I am thankful for that, there was some time I don't remember. But, after looking at the pictures of the other men I remembered alot. I wish I knew then what I have learned now.  Seems Like yesterday when a 17 yr old kid from Virginia, was piped aboard the USS Estes, and the Watch said " Welcome Aboard hope you enjoy your first 100 yrs onboard".  I almost crapped my pants.
Most of us were youngsters then some like myself were actually just babies, trying to grow up a little.

Thanks for the gift to the crew of USS Estes 1966
