Enjoyed my visit to more history of the Underhill family. Although I was lucky enough to see no real acton during my stay abord the USS Pine Island (AV12) from 2/65 to 2/67 there was always a tension in the air. I can only day dream about what must have been big time tension durnig WW2 times. Suggar@flash.net

I was just surfing through a variety of Navy pages and stumbled
upon your page. It brought back memories of the memorial serive
that I put together for the UNDERHILL, July 1990 at the U.S.
Naval Academy. I was the Chaplain who performed the service.
I was struck then as I am today at the honor, courage and
commitment of the men of the UNDERHILL. During that service
and following at the banquet I met several of the crew and
their families. Though names have not stayed with me over
the years, that evening still rattles around my head from
time to time. As I said then and will say today THANK YOU
FOR YOUR SACRIFICE. Your gift of freedom is truly appreciated.
Take Care and God Bless!

that I put together for the UNDERHILL, July 1990 at the U.S.
Naval Academy. I was the Chaplain who performed the service.
I was struck then as I am today at the honor, courage and
commitment of the men of the UNDERHILL. During that service
and following at the banquet I met several of the crew and
their families. Though names have not stayed with me over
the years, that evening still rattles around my head from
time to time. As I said then and will say today THANK YOU
FOR YOUR SACRIFICE. Your gift of freedom is truly appreciated.

Now I'm not sure what ship he served on. His name was Alfred Polon and I remember he said he was a cook. Please help if you can.

I am interested in the Underhill as my uncle, Edward Ponas was one of the crew that did not survive.
I plan on attending the reunion in Maryland this year.
The picture of the ship looks GREAT !
