USS Hanson
A Visit to the Hanson - December 1972
From a Kid's Perspective
Photos by Pat Fernicola
Humor by Larry Newman

In December 1972, Pat Fernicola, along with five Fernicola children and Norman Martin (RD3, 1951-54) and his five children, along with their spouses, had the privilege of visiting the USS Hanson in San Diego just a few months before her decommissioning. The photos below were taken at that time. The humor associated with these photos is in no way intended to denigrate either people or vessel. We thank Pat for sharing these pics with us.
