My name is Rick (Richard) E. Holmes. I joined the Brooke as a seaman, E-3 non-rated, in 1966. I served as an RD until my departure in Oct. 1968. I came from Olympia, Washington where I was born and raised. I returned to Olympia upon discharge and still live there at 6320 33rd Ave. N.W. , Olympia, Washington, 98502. My phone # is 360-866-0942, and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. In 1970, I moved to Denver, Colorado, lived there for 3 years, during this time, I hooked up with old shipmate Buck Bowman, who served with me as a BM-3. I have talked with P.J. (Paul) Miller, fellow RD a number of times over the years, from Rochester, N.Y., but have never gotten to see him since leaving the Brooke. I’d love to hear from any of my old shipmates anytime and will check back to see if any new ones sign up. I love what you’ve done with the web-site, it’s very nice, and great to look over. Until yesterday, I had no idea it existed.

I am looking for anyone who might have served with my Dad, CWO Hodson, who was the Electronics Maint. Officer on Brooke around the 1980-1984 time frame. In addition there was another gentleman, Lt (jg) Chris Thompson who served on Brooke with my dad during the same timeframe. If anyone has any information on how I might contact Chris or who knew my Dad, please contact me at: email@example.com . Thank you very much.
The following link will show a picture of my Dad: CWO Hodson:

Eric was the decommissioning gunnery officer on Brooke in 1988. Eric is collecting ship's patches from the commands her served aboard. If anyone has a "USS BROOKE FFG-1" (notice I did not say "DEG-1) patch, Eric would really like to hear from you. Probably can trade those monkey wood salad bowls you picked up in Subic.

Message From Thom Ahl 2/27/03:
Thom was stationed aboard Brooke from 71-74 as an ETR3. I received an e-mail from him with the following question:
"A question for you. In the Radar Transmitter room, in the overhead, a junction box has a cover plate with the inscription: "USS Broke, DOG-1" inscribed on it. Even the captain didn't know the story behind it. What is the straight 'skinny' on it?"
If anyone knows the story behind the inscription, feel free to contact Thom (he is listed on the Locator Page)
Message From Tom Adametz 2/4/03:
Shipmates.....One of our fellow crewmembers, John Limbaugh (STG2 65-68) is recovering from a heart attack. Feel free to drop him a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm sure it will pick up his spirits and speed his recovery hearing from members of the "Brooke Gang". Besides, it's cold up in the northern reaches of Idaho!
