PO1 John Fowler (Ret.) says of this photo: "The photo was taken in the fall of 1973. I do not remember exactly when but I believe it was September. The reason some of the people are in the greens is because they were on a ship that was going to a foreign port and everyone had to be in the same uniform. The rest of the ship's company received the greens after the photo was taken. Here is a partial list of people in the photo. I will give you first names where I can remember them. I am not sure if I have everyone's rank correct for that time. "
