Aloha Bruce,

I was a crewman in FA Division 1950/52 and was onboard for her first combat deployment. I am now one of the Supervisors of Volunteer groups who come aboard to help in maintenance of the ship.

After her facelift, she is all the same shade of grey again! Rest assured that the Mo will receive TLC for a long, long time. We got one of our BOFORS 40 Mike Mike AAA guns back and it is displayed on the pier adjacent to the ship. This mount needs a lot of fixup/repair/pain, but we have a designated crew assigned to it. We have all 4 50Cal machine guns back onboard.

We have a great crew of folks who are dedicated to keeping her ready for inspection. Lots of work yet for the new deck, but it's coming along.

Take care, Brooks
