I remember Cam. He was very short and heavy with a typical New York attitude. Okay, he had lots of New York attitude!!

He was quite the machinist and would spend long hours on the lathe turning metal so we could all work on rings for our loved ones while on spec ops or med runs. Soon everyone in Manuevering would have files and emery paper working on the rings.

Thanks, Cam, for keeping us busy. The rings we created were very much appreciated.

  • I remember Cam. He was very short and quite heavy with a typical New York attitude. Okay he had lots of New York attitude!! He was quite the machinist and would go back to the lathe (shaft alley port side) and turn some metal so we could all work on rings for our loved ones while on the spec ops or med runs. Soon everyone in manuevering would have files and emery paper working on the rings. Thanks Cam for keeping us busy and the rings we created were very much appreciated.

  • I remember that Chuck was also known as "can o chilli". We used to tease him about getting stuck in the AMR2/ENG Room hatch and having to kick him out of it. We went shooting a few times and he sold me a sweet little Ruger .357 that I wish I still had.
