My Dad left out from Pearl on the Pennsylvania. His job was FC2C Fireman 2nd class by then. Johnny Carson was already off the ship when they left out from what he had said. Sadly my Dad passed away a few years ago. He never really talked about the Navy much. I would love to hear if anyone knows any stories about him (Frederick Leroy Chezem) as he had told me 2 things that stick out in my mind. 1 is that he broke a Marines back in Panama and spent 3 days in the brig. The other is that he dated the famous movie star Eleanor Parker and this was confirmed by shipmates when he died.
