I served on the Hollister from 1961 - 1964. Joined the ship in Bremerton, Washington and departed 2 weeks before deployment to Viet Nam. Many good memories... SOG E5 :)

I served as the ASW officer (LT.JG) in 1971 and 1972. We were deployed to Viet Nam with Shrike missiles mounted on our ASROC to shoot at radar sites. They worked!

Was on the Hollister in 1971-1973. Westpac was an experience of a lifetime. God bless all who were assigned for duty on this remarkable ship.

Take care

Served aboard the Happy Holly 1977 /1977 . My uncle survived 2 destroyer sinkings during WW2 only to be recalled to active duty for the Korean War. His last ship, my first ship. I reported late on a Friday night on a reserve weekend. Consequently no empty rack thus I can say my first bunk was a hammock in Anchor Windless Room. I was also given swift instruction on my first GQ station. The Peloris Starboard Bridge wing. Of all the instructions . no one told me what standby meant and as luck would have it the first time I witnessed a 5 in 38 gunfire it was a stars hell at night I was cutting my bearings as instructed which at that moment had me looking across the barrel of that gun. The last thing I remember was thinking stand by for what? I woke up on a table on the mess decks being looked over by our corpsman. A shipmate relayed to me I stumbled into the bridge in a daze and as soon as I ran out of sound powered phone cord I dropped like a sack of potatoes.
