Junior Licensed Engineer Anthony F. Rieber
Anthony "Tony" F. Rieber--at age 77--assuming duties as a Junior Licensed Engineer on board USNS General Maurice Rose (T-AP-126) circa mid-1966. He is posing with an engine order telegraph.
Rieber was one of many who came out of retirement to fill a shortage of licensed personnel in the Military Sea Transportation Service during the Vietnam War buildup. Rieber probably served on the ship's second Pacific deployment, which began in September 1966.
