I am new member I have been keeping up with the LST325 for about two years now. I enjoy all the chat going on and all the activities of LST 325. I spent three and a half years aboard the LST 898. It saddened and made me angry when Mobile would not help and provide a place to dock. I was aboard twice in Mobile and since then I have been unable to travel. I will look forward to all the messages on this forum. My home is in Alabama.

The 898 made quite a name for itself at the Inchon invasion as well as elsewhere. What years did you serve on her? Just a word of advice....watch out for those Gator Gals! If you've been tuned in for 2 years, you know what trouble they can get a guy into. We look forward to your input.

I'm one of the Gator Gals and don't believe a word Chris has to say. When you see us we all have halos and a beautiful set of wings. Our job in LST is to spread cheer and be a friend to everyone. So welcome and we hope to hear a lot from you.

It's good to hear from you.   I see that the 898 (Lincoln County) was launched in Pittsburgh about a month before my Dads ship the 905 (Madrea County it's the LST in he middle) and both ships still exist. Do you have any stories or pictures you would share with us? What was your rate?

Glad to have you aboard!

As an 'initiation' to the web page, do you have a favorite sea story you'd like to share? (Only if you're comfortable doing so)

And as you know, the Gator Gals are harmless... it's CHRIS you have to watch out for! Think about coming to work week if you can... you'll meet the whole gang!

Thanks for your service to your Country..

One of my favorite sea stories is : We were at sae frome San Diego to Pearl Harbor and it was some what rough but a sailor either jumped or fell overboard. On e of the SA just out of boot camp was on deck and saw the crewman go by in the water and he yelled"THERE GOES A MERMAID". One of the crewmembers saw the sailor in the water and jumped over board and swam back to the sailor in the water carring a life preserver. Both were brought back aboard safely.
