I rode the Holland around the world, then received orders to the James Monroe, but was medically disqualified from Subs, so took orders to USS Thorn (DD-988), then USS Garcia (FF1040), eventually retiring in 1988 at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard after 20 years of "undetected crime".

All veterans and dependents who are interested in learning about Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation, pension or general benefits can learn at U.S. Veteran Compensation Programs (USVCP) (http://www.veteranprograms.com). USVCP is a “how to” resource that teaches veterans

how to gain benefits they’ve earned.  Also, veterans & dependents visit often to learn about “breaking news” that affects veterans and their family members.  USVCP has been a great resource for me, and I’m sure it will help you too.  Visit http://www.veteranprograms.com today!

Retired off the Holland in 89. I was in the Aft Engineroom and A gang. She was a hard working ship, We went on some tough cruises of up to 3 week: Baltimore, Bermuda and Cape Kennedy. She was a good feeder and hard working ship. We won the NEY Award in 1988. INSERV and OPPE plus everything else kept us hopping.

   I sailed on the Holland, from Norfolk, VA. in Nov. 1975 and left the Holland in July, 1978. I remember Warrant Officer Royal, 3rd Div., Division Officer. Capt. Wrigley was the Commanding Officer of the Holland at the time I shipped over for my final tour of duty. My wife Joyce and our 4 children (Colleen, Carla, Christina & Joel), served my last tour at Bath Maine Shipyard as leading Chief (Engineering Div.), Fleet Introduction Team for the Oliver Hazard Perry Class Frigates being built there. I retired in January, 1981. I was promoted to Senior Chief during my final tour.
