I was a US Navy Photographer's Mate aboard the FDR from 1958-60 and I'm making these Videos so shipmates will have something visual to show their families and pass along to future generations. My plan is to make a Video for each cruise and this is the sixth one completed. A portion of the purchase price of this Video is donated to the USS FDR Reunion Association.
In February1962 the ship arrived at New York City for a 2 month overhaul in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. In March she headed for her home port of Mayport, Florida. After refresher training out of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba she set off for theMediterranean Sea. This video shows scenes from New York Harbor, Brooklyn Navy Yard, Mayport, FL, Guantanamo Bay,Rhodes, Athens, Istanbul, Cannes, Pisa, Florence, Rome and Paris along with Refueling and Replenishing at Sea.
