Just looking at photos of the old girl. Hope this message in a bottle find all who served, especially from 82 to 84, in good spirits. I seen the last Oliver Hazard Perry class FFG-59 just left for there last deployment from Norfolk VA. Had a chance to see her a year ago or so and it brought back the good memories. Feel free to contact me for comments, criticism, or shooting the s#!t.

Regards,

I have been looking for someone that served on the USS Sides in Long Beach, California, his name is Travi Robert Grimes he was a chief petty officer and served in 1987 to 1989 possibly not exact on the year. I have been searching for him for 20 years if you have any information I would really appreciate it.

Thank you,
Robin Morse

Hello to any and all old shipmates on Sides. I was MPA from fall of 82 till August of 84. Lots of good
memories, Westpac, crossing the line, etc. Retired in Georgia now so not sure about reunion possibilities
but if anything gets started, please keep me on the list.

Would like to say hi to anyone onboard the Sides from 1982-1986. Letting everyone know we would like to get together for some kind of reunion. I've personally seen RM2 Brux and HT1 Gray recently. Been in contact with IC3 Roy, RMSN Watson, RMC Wallace and EM3 Groce. Would love to hear from anyone.
