Does anyone who was on board the Rush from 1961-62 remember a BM-3 whose last name was Deere ? That's as in John Deere. That poor guy caught hell from everyone on board because of his name. We were in DC central for General Quarters. Even the kackies (SP?) answered him with " Yes Dear or No Dear " whenever they asked him any question.
Also, there was a BT-3 in my fireroom with the name of Blossom. Any info on either of these two gentlemen would be appreciated.
