USS Markab Association - guestbook





Comments:
Hi, I lived on board Markab AD21 Jun-Aug 1950, Orange TX. I helped place USS Luzon and Fort Mandan in commission. I was aboard Luzon and Trfd to Fort Mandan, all in OR.TX.

My first duty on Markab was Brig Guard. I was just out of Boot Camp. The prisoner was a Bank Robber about 6 1/2 ft tall. got hell because I didn't even know where the mess hall was and the prisoner had to lead me there whilst everyone laughed at me and told me to give him the night stick.

In the early 1970s I was stationed in Portland OR. I had a river view window, one day a ship was being towed up the river to a shipbreaking yard. I grabbed my glasses and on the ship's stern was MARKAB.
