Staten Island Lighthouse Charles Evans Cron WW2; my father was assigned to the USS Daily, a destroyer, built at Bethlem Steel on SI. He came back from the N.Atlantic to sign on to that new ship. His father and brothers worked at the Bethlem yard and he could not let them know he was there, he could see them working on the sister ship in the next dry dock over, My Dad worked there too before the war. That's torture too, JR. Generally it's not a good thing to tic off an engine men, they can make your showers salty, your food cold and your cabin hot. To say nothing about lights and toilets.
