PO1 John Fowler (Ret.) says: "The
photo was taken in the fall of 1973. I do not remember exactly when but I believe it was September.
The reason some of the people are
in the greens is because they were on a ship that was going to a foreign port and everyone had to be in the same
uniform. The rest of the
ship's company received the greens after the photo was taken. Here is a partial list of people in the photo.
I will give you first names
where I can remember them. I am not sure if I have everyone's rank correct for that
