Comments: Served on board the USS Hollister as a RD in 1969-70 prior to being transferred to the USS Gridley 1970-71. Old #788 was a great tin-can with a great group of guys. 66 years old now but will never forget my first WesPac tour with CRD Stephanson. God Bless the CDR and the entire crew of the USS Hollister, DD-788 out of Long Beach, CA.
