The Cree was an immaculate ship in those days. Her crew was proud of her and maintained her with pride. The motor room was always spotless, and the whole ship felt like it was the Capt’s yacht. The only sea time I had on the Cree was local around SanDiego. After A school I put in for ATFs first choice and got the Molala (ATF106) and spent the rest of my enlistment on her. Got out in Sept 67. Chuck Park, EM3 Leave A Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
