William E. Polley... 28/Mar/1999:01:57:24 Served aboard Canisteo most of 1958 as yoeman for 1st Lt. Captain J. R. Penland was the skipper, Cdr. E.C. Reynolds was Exec., Ens. Gilfeather was my division officer. The ship was underway most of the time. Was underway in the Mediterranean during a crisis in Beirut July until Oct. without entering port. Later that year the ship collided with aircraft carrier Intrepid causeing extensive damage to her port side. Got transferred while ship was being repaired.
