Howard M. Russell Jr. - STGSN - 1969-1970
I have come across some pictures of ships that were with the Cecil at Gitmo
I also came across a Honorary Submariner card presented to me from W.F. Henry, CDR, USN of the USS Tirante SS420. If my memory holds up, this was given to me and a couple of other sonar gang members from the Cecil when we traded places with a few of the sonar gang from the sub. Since we, the STG's from the Destroyer were primarily active sonar, and the STS's were primarily passive sonar, it was thought to be a good exercise for us to switch a few sonar men for the day. Of course it was voluntary, you know what I mean. Who would want to leave the spacious room and comfort of the Cecil for the confines of a world war II Sub, Glad I was picked. Any way you can use the pic's any way you want.
