Best and Worst of Times

by Lt. Robert Yuhas, Engineering Officer (November 1967 to June 1970)

Best

  • 1.

    Getting home to see a daughter who was born while we were in Antarctica.

  • 2.

    Party time in Punta Arenas, and the great hotel with the extra great dinners. Ordered a Chateau

Brieon for two along with a bottle of wine & appetizers and ate the whole thing.

  • 3.

    Beer and pizza nights. (Can‘t do that anymore)

  • 4.

    Diving in New Zealand (after a night of drinking) and coming back with lobster, fish and about

100# of abalone.

  • 5.

    Having a CO and XO that would put up me!!

  • 6.

    A crew that was the ―best‖ I served with in 30 years. – Fought like heck among ourselves, never let

anyone else pick on ANY other crew member, and pulled together when the chips were down; and accomplished seemingly impossible tasks.

Worst

1. Helping to pull the diving officer (Lt. R.) out of the water, at night, after his hose got caught in the broken wreckage after the grounding in Antarctica. He ended up with diver‘s pneumonia.
