August 1969

Tom Tingle My dad (Air Force) came back from Vietnam and got orders for Germany. Sailed the SS United States from New York to Le Harve in August of 1969. I was 14 and the time and it was quite the adventure. I’ve loved ships ever since ! Made prednisone a special trip to Philadelphia to see her in 2015. Sad to see her tethered and rusting away, paint peeling and abandoned. I heard someone bought her and plans to do some sort of restoration. Sure would love to see that !
