Update of the History page by RM2 Cunningham
While reading the History section at the website today I noted a slight discrepancy in the paragraph
relating to the accomplishments of the Fox as follows
"communications staff being so well trained they were able to maintain an entire flotilla's radio traffic without losing a message".
This actually happened during the 1968-69 deployment under the leadership of Woodward and Haber.<
What good fortune to have an RMCS like Haber and a Communication Officer smart enough to follow his lead.
Several of the radio crew received Decorations and the rest of us received Letters of Commendation.
I was an RMSN at the time and later made RM2 for the 1970 deployment.

"During this intense period her communication staff, under the leadership of RMCS Haber,
was so well trained that they were able to maintain an entire flotilla's radio traffic without losing a message.
During her 1968 deployment, her communications officer (OC Division head) was LT Robert Woodward.
Woodward later work for the Washington Post and teamed with Burnstein investigated the now infamous Watergate Office break-in which led to President Richard Nixon's resignation."
