"My tour of duty aboard the "Cubby" was in 1956 and 1957. Our home port was in Norfolk, VA and involved in many exercises up and down the East Coast. We were also frequent visitors to Cuba. It was very interesting to see mentioned some of the ole shipmates. The skipper, LCDR Dietzen, was known to be an Admiral and was assigned to the Pentagon in the early 70's. This is an excellent article on the USS Cubera and the pictures bring back old memories. My rating was RM2, Horace Lewis was the Lead Radioman. I recall that my bunk was located in the forward torpedo room, above one of the torpedos. "

"I am hoping that there is someone out there who remembers my Uncle. His name is Edward Petersen. He was an Electricians Mate on the Cubera around '62 and on. I am desperate to find him. He is my only (hopefully) living relative. I have not seen or heard from him since I was 5 years old. Please, if any one has any information about him, email me. Thank you in advance."

"Very nice log! I just found it. Please forgive a visitor from the wardroom. I've enjoyed reading the comments by those of you with whom I sailed aboard Cubbybear. I served there from January 1962 until February 1965. Joe Sartori stirred a couple of my old memories. While on watch as the OOD on the surface, I broke three bones in my right foot during the big storm (in 1962) he described. Later (in 1964), as the last man on the main deck forward, I was nearly washed over the side when the sea picked up and caused us to stop the refueling underway from the carrier Randolph (CVS-15). I would enjoy hearing from any of you. I stay away from home for long periods (usually a month or two at a time). If I don't answer, please know I missed your message but did not ignore it. Best wishes to each of you! Doc (D.B.) Rushing."
