Comments: Hello
My Grandfather, Willard Mohrman, was on the Cabot between 1946 - 1949.
He was just diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis, a disease largely linked to workers on ships, docks, etc. back in that time.
Please let me know if you or anyone you know that was on this ship or similar ships at that time have suffered from this disease.

Thank you all.

Comments: I am the son of a crew member of the Cabot. My father served during WWII. I am looking for any information possible concerning my father during his service.
My father passed away in 1987. He was a Seabee. Some of the stories he told were of Guam,the Marshall and Marianas islands, and Hawaii. I would like to see if anyone who remembers my father is still alive,or if it is possible to find out anything further about his service. My father's name was Orville Lucas. He was from Columbus,Ohio. He went by the nicknames "Luke" or "Jumpin'Jack". Any help would be appreciated.

Comments: My grandfather, Frank Daniel Boone, served on the USS Cabot as a cook and I'm trying to find any additional information. My father's memory is no help so I don't know the years served. If anyone knows where I can get the cruise book, photographs (that aren't already published online) or a reference to his service, I'll take what ever you've got. My grandfather died in '68 or '69 and there are just no records that I can find. Does anyone remember him?

Keywords: after serving as a quartermaster aboard the uss bennington cva-20, it went to the med, my term of enlistment was going to end before then so i was transferred from that ship (navigation department) to being a signalman on board the cabot. over in my info about the ussbennington cva-20 is where i posted more info than here. i left the cabot at quonset point, rhode island around the last month of 1953 (probably had been on board for say six months). as i recall i think we went (for me it could have been back? if we went to halifax nova scotia for a shakedown cruise?)

Comments: We flew down from WILLOW GROVE NAS in R4Ds. Our F-6s did a few "touch and goes" for a day on the runway at Pensacola before trying to land on board the Cabot.
We sailed down to Galvestion Texas. We took on fresh drinking water there. Never did get that Sulpher taste out of the tanks. I was in a starboard side "well" just off the flight deck during operations working as a "fly one talker" relaying information. The rest of the time I
worked on plane maintence records. We towed a yellow gunnery target some days. Had two planes go over the side, one on a "cold cat shot" the other landed missing everything including the
barrier cables. Both men survived. Sorry to hear the old girl is being cut up and scraped.
