I was extremely sorry to hear this. Jim was my Chief on my first ship (USS Vogelgesang) when I was a 21 year old Seaman. He was a great Chief and a great guy. He was liked and respected by all of us in the Radio Gang.

Most of the Radioman who served on the Vogelgesang looked up and respected the Chief. My only regret is that all the years that followed we never stayed in touch. So, to his family, know that he was cared about as he believed in us and what we could accomplish. He provided me with much training and in fact gave me the career that I had once I left the Navy, Teletype Repair. RIP Chief Conrad.
