USNS General Alexander M. Patch


I came across the Atlantic on this in February 1961. I think it was my last cruise. Haven't been on one since.

Do you have any memory of it?

You must have been about about 4 then.
You found an old album and it's taking you back?.

I was almost 5 years of age. I remember this vividly. We watched the same Disney movies every day.

Traveled on the patch during the winter of '65 I believe. Germany to New Jersey. I was a ten year old Air Force brat. The North Atlantic was no fun in the winter - everybody was seasick. Otherwise a fun voyage. Sorry to see the ship was scrapped out a decade ago.
