James K. Hall

I went aboard Caiman at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard in San Francisco, Ca in I beleive April 1964 and served aboard her until December 1966. My brother Roy Hall also a Sonarman was also on board for a few months after I came aboard and I beleive at least at that it was unusual for two brothers to be on the same boat. During my time aboard we were involved in a yard period at Long Beach Ca. and mostly training operations in Southern California opareas. We did deploy in 1965 for about seven or eight months to Westpac where we did two patrols of around 45-60 days each and made a run to Viet Nam for search and rescue operations. During my time aboard Cdr. Hyde was the Skipper and Cdr. Gene Cash was XO.
