Response to WW2 LIberty Ship

Perry you are correct, it was the WW II liberty ship John W. Brown. They were very impressed with the LST-325 Radio Room, took a lot of pictures. In 1963 I was in the Air Force and station in Tuely Greenland, the Coast Guard Ice breaker West Wind broke a path in to our harbor so supply ships could get in. We only had two summer months to get resupply befor the harbor would ice up. I was a heavy equipment operator in the motor pool, we work 12 hrs shift to transport supplies from the old WW II Liberty Ships to base storage. They enjoyed the special tour of our LST and invited General Patton to take part in one of their future events. Take care. SARGE
