Re: Help build the Madison Sailing List and locate shipmates

I remember a M Div First Class with the name of Zelinski, or similar. Seems like he and MMC Berlyak served at about the same time on Madison.

MTCS(SS) Chester "Wayne" Brister

Re: So how many times did the Madison go aground**

Well, this is an old post but since I just registered for the site I thought I'd throw my line in the water. I remember a late underway due to a minor engine room steam leak. By the time we did get underway the sun was setting making for a more difficult navigation picture for the bridge team. Also ...
