On the subject of letting one get away from you... (naval) was coming
into Pearl Harbor pier K-26...I was standing next to the throttle watch
in the after engine room, (Larry Bain from Springfield, Mo.) and he told
me that last year when we came in here...we hit the pier. The engine
order telegraph called all stop...he answered it...again...back down one
third...he answered it...then...emergency backdown...stand by for
collision. We hit it again! Figured that the old man let the same junior
officer take her in that did it last year. This happened aboard the USS
Alamo LSD-33 in 1960 coming back from a WesPac tour. Fred Martin
