    HI SHIPMATE:

    MY NAME IS KEN (SKIPPER) KNUDSON. THE CALVERT WAS MY FIRST SHIP, AND I SPENT ABOUT 4+ YEARS
    ON HER. I STARTED OUT IN 1ST DIVISION, THEN WENT TO 2ND DIVISION, THEN THE “NEW” BOAT GROUP
    DIVISION, AND, FINALLY BACK TO 1ST DIVISION. I SERVED ONBD CALVERT FROM 1962 UNTILL DECOMM.
    I LEFT THE SHIP IN HUNTER’S POINT SHIPYARD. SOME OF THE MEN I WORKED WITH WAS, BM2 (LATER BM1),
    DANIEL G. BAGGETT, 1ST DIVISION LPO, BM2 REVIERA, BM2 WOOLTE, BM3 DENHAM, BM3 HAYNES, BMC MORK,
    BM1 ROY BONNELL, BM2 SMITH, AND A NUMBER OF OTHERS, WHOSE NAMES ESCAPE ME NOW. I REPORTED
    ABOARD AS A SN IN THE FIRST WK OF DECEMBER, 1962, AND LEFT AS A BM3. I RETIRED FROM THE NAVY,
    30 JUNE 1993 AS A BMC. IT WAS A GOOD RIDE, AND I WOULDN’T HAVE TRADED IT FOR ANYTHING.

    THESE COMMENTS. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT ERA YOU WERE ONBD. I’M ALWAYS UP FOR TALKING WITH
    OLD AND NEW SHIPMATES.

    Is there no one out there that served aboard Calvert, 1960-61. I cant be the only one or was she a ghost ship back then??? Does anyone remember the 1961 trip to Todd Shipyard in Seattle Washington and the storm we got into off the coast of San Francisco??? Gave us a longer than expected stay in the yards. Since I am from Tacoma Wa that stay was GREAT ,I got to sleep with girl friend most every night!!!!!
