Internal Communications Electrician 2nd Class Forrest, USN (in service, circa 1973-1975)

IC2 Forrest was involved in the removal of equipment from the stricken cruiser ex-USS Galveston (CLG-3) in about 1973-1975. At that time he may have been assigned to the Naval Amphibious School at Coronado, California, as the removed items were to be installed in a simulator at the Surface Warfare Officer School, a part of the Amphibious School.

This page features our only images of IC2 Forrest.
