Comments : I was a reservist at this time in my last year of high school at Lake Taylor High and not a part of the Nuclear Crew. I think we pounded new gaskets for the steam plant and held an economy run before selling this vessel. I remember possibly chipping ice off the superstructure and laying ship/shore power cables but that might have been the USS Ellison which upon i also served. Sometimes i get these two ships confused with each other.My dad was a Leut Mustanger on the William R. Rush. We lived, during this time, in Norfolk Virginia but were mostly a Navy Gypsy Family moving all up and down the East Coast.
