I also expect that there will be old shipmates from the USS Fox, my father, as you know from his bio on this site, Pop served as XO from 1970 - 1971 December before he took command of the Schenectady .If you wish to contact me by telephone the following number is my Cell phone (602) 793-7142. You may call me anytime I am currently at my familes home here in Arizona. My mother and I would be happy to see old shipmates bid the Skipper a fond farewell tenatively/ hopefully November 9th Veterans Weekend.
