Voyage 2005 Crewmembers

Crete to USA (2000-2001)
Original Sailing Crew

Listed below are the crewmembers  who made the final voyage from Gibraltar to Mobile, AL.  Credit is also due to those who worked on the ship in Crete and/or Gibraltar but, for various reasons, were unable to make the final voyage.  Their efforts also contributed immensely to the project.

The crew of the LST-325 gathers for a group photograph prior to leaving Crete.  Four of these crewmembers had to depart the ship prior to its arrival in Alabama (those names are noted in gray type).  Front row, from left:  George White, Clayton (Bill) Nickerson, Donald Molzahn, Ronald Maranto, James Edwards, Dewey Taylor, Robert Jornlin, Hichael Nedeff, John Calvin and Bailey Wrinkle.  Middle row, from left:  Harold Slemmons, Norval Jones, Albert White, Ernest Andrus, James McCandrew, Joe Sadlier, Raymond Mai, Richard Young, Richard Meyer and Jack Carter.  Back row, from left:  Donald Chapman, Edward Strobel, Gary Lyon, Lauren Whiting, Bruce Voges and Corbin Fowkes.  Not pictured:  James Bartlett, William Hill, Donald Lockas, Joe Milakovich, Dominick Perruso and Paul Stimpson.

LST 325 Crewmember Roster

Listed below are the crewmembers who have worked so hard to make the LST 325 what it is today.   These dedicated people have given of themselves at various times since the ship's arrival in January 2001, doing repair work on the ship and working hard to enable the 2003 River Trip and the 2005 WWII Memorial voyage.  Their various activities, with many pictures, have been logged on the Progress Report pages (please note that the progress reports are archived by month).  All have devoted weeks of their time (crewmember qualifications require a minimum of 80 hours of shipboard work); many have spent months at a time.  (It should be noted that virtually hundreds of others have worked hard for the ship without having met the crewmember qualifications.)  This is a crew that we can truly be proud of.  And they can most certainly take pride in themselves!
