1959 WestPac Cruise……from Randy Steffen

“During the 1959 WestPac Cruise, I was a brand-new Seaman Apprentice assigned to the Sixth Division. During the cruise, I borrowed a 35mm camera and shot one roll of film. The photographs were developed and sent back to me as slides. I mailed these slides to my Mother back in Garrett, Indiana. As the years passed, I had forgotten they even existed and then in 1987 my Mother passed away and a few of her personal belongings were sent on to me where, until recently, they remained packed away. After my wife and I moved from Imperial Beach, CA to Las Vegas, NV last September, I rediscovered those forgotten slides while unpacking some boxes. After I had the slides made into regular photos, I wanted to share them with the Association.”
