I was a nine yr. old boy when I voyaged from Brooklyn to Bremerhaven in the fall of 1957 with my father, C.W.O. "Jerry" Jaramillo, my Mom, Edna, and younger brother, Rick and sister, Jacqueline. It's a priviledge to sign on this day, Veterans Day, 2010. We spent the next 4 yrs in Pirmasens,... More
22 Nov Atlantic Crossing in Fall 1959 (Walter Barfield)
I was given a scullery crew; our duty hours was 24 on and 24 off. Since I could go to the chow hall at any time, I ate my way across. This helped me to master the seasickness that plagued so many.

Went to Germany from Brooklyn 1965. Would like to get a picture of the Rose.
19 Aug Good ole days (Richard Saltzburg)
Last I heard it was in Vietnam- I spent a few hours a few years back trying to track her. When my dad was working in Berlin, Germany, we used the Rose several times from Bremerhaven to NY for home leave.
19 Aug So did I (Richard Saltzburg)
I think I crossed the Atlantic at least twice on the Rose. I was only about 7-11 years old. But I remember the trip well.
17 Jul Rose (Alan Westwater)
I traveled Germany in August of 1964 on her.
04 Jul Picture (Fred Costello)
I returned from Germany in 1962. Bremerhaven to Brooklyn Navy Yard. I'd love a picture of the Rose if possible.
