Guest Book



    I have managed to resurrect some of the Guest Books from the previous FDR Websites. There are some that are lost forever but this is the best there is at the moment. There is a lot of good stuff there.

 There is software on board that makes it unreadable to the “bots” who collect that sort of stuff.

All entries must be approved before they will appear in the book. Any inappropriate entries, as well as those with invalid email addresses, will be deleted and will not appear. I check daily so don’t despair if your entry doesn’t appear immediately.

Due to a rash of automated spam messages we now use “captcha” authentication.  Just enter the “captcha” code and then SUBMIT. Don’t worry about upper or lower case….either will work. If you have trouble reading it just click the little button to the right and it will “refresh”. Thanks!

Many shipmates have told me, via email, about having visited this site. Oddly many have not left entries here for their shipmates to see. THEY do wonder how you are and probably would love to hear from you. This is a great way get back in contact.


For YOUR protection – No home phone numbers or addresses please. Please save that for when you make email contact.



  1. James Adams says:

    I was assigned to the FDR in1966-68. I wanted to know if anyone can confirm that there was agent orange aboard that ship and did its planes drop agent orange on the enemy.
    Also did the ship filter sea water for drinking and bathing. The VA said all my ailments appear to be caused by agent orange but refuse to tell me if it was onboard the FDR.

Never forget the night in Genoa Italy when sea was rough and we had to stay ashore. Spent that night chasing sailors and climbed the Cargo nets to get aboard the next day. I had the big radar antenna On the mast so spent much time on top of the ship. Would do it again tomorrow.

  12. Babs Flynn says:

    I am writing to find out if anyone remembers a EN3 Bill Flynn. Bill was the engineman on the Captain’s boat before he got off of active duty in October 1975. He started working on the boilers first. I do not know if the Commanding Officer or anyone remembers that Bill was on the Captain’s gig and had to dive in and save a sailor. Bill had to fight to keep them away from the propellers. Bill and the sailor that he dove in to save are lucky they survived. If anyone remembers Engineman William Flynn please contact me at Thank you, Babs Flynn Bill was in October 1972 until October 1975.

  16. Edmund P. O'Connell says:

    This is Kelly O’Connell daughter of Edmund (Ed) O’Connell AMH2 VA-12 1965 – 1966 serving on board the Roosevelt. My dad is suffering from three major medical issues related to exposure from Agent Orange as defined by the military. My mom (ailing herself) is taking care of him at their home. We desperately need someone who served with him in 1966 off the coast of Vietnam to verify his statement that aircraft off the carrier transported men into the mainland of Nam to make aircraft repairs. Currently the VA has no record of these trips, nor are they delineated in the ship’s manifest. As a result, he is denied all VA disability benefits. He also was exposed to Agent Orange on board ship when he had to clean it off returning aircraft. Dad is from Watervliet, NY and served 20 years in the Navy retiring in 1978. Please help him if you can. Please email
