Dog Rocks-----sure I've been there, spent more days than I care to think about on pickett duty, but never knew exactly where I was................ One year we were on station more than twice the time of any other ship in the squadron,  one trip, 42 days at sea. For this we all had a letter of comendation placed in our service record.

Everyone needed a rest...... Dogs Rocks are ok, but rowing the motor whale boat back to the ship was a experience...............
 Dennis Tulp....RM2....Upon leaving Kretchmer, five days prior to ship leaving for Guam, went to Staff Duty at Comcrudeslant. While there obtained his First Class FCC License. After discharge was a TV Broadcast Engineer, Industrial Video Engineer.  Prior to retirement in 2003, he and his wife Bonnie, the same great gal he married in 1965 while on the Kretchmer, owned and operated a Electronic Repair Business for 24 years.  Boy, this is as bad as having to watch someone else's home movies...........................

Dennis Tulp and Clifford Moter on another exciting rest/relaxation trip to the notorious Dog Rocks.  There was great snorkeling, good food, and always cold beer. It's not much when you get there, but hey...we enjoyed it.
