51. “Man Over Board”

Petty Officer Kerry Truax remembers:
Captain, I do remember. This was a happy story, one for the good guys. I was stationed on the bridge when word of the MOB came to the bridge and I was there when Chief George Sumner came up to talk to you. He was very thankful to be alive. I remember you two ended your chat with a chuckle or two.




  1. I was at replenishment station number one and saw Chase Summers get hit by the fuel hose and knocked over the side. Man, next thing I know he was back on board. What a lucky man he was that day!
