USS McCandless FF-1084
I have recently found some information about my old ship on the web. I plan on putting some pictures here for people to see, especially my old friends in the Navy.
I came aboard the Mac in March of 1983 and left the ship in May of 1987. I was a Machinest Mate 3rd class. I worked primarily in the engine room as the upper level man. I also worked in Auxiliary room 1, with the ships service turbine generators.
This is what she looked like when I came aboard.
This is what she looked like when I left her. Notice Phalanx aft, and hurricane shielding on the bow.
