Histories for USS Wabash - AOR 5




Putting the Bash in Wabash
I was on the Wabash from 74-78 as a QM. I was on the helm when we had our little run in with the USS Flint during our transit from SF to Subic Bay in 1976. I was told by the old-timer QM's that we also had a collision with the USS Iwo Jima. Now I read here about the collision with the Kitty Hawk. We also tore off our antenna when we sailed under a bridge on the way to the fuel pier in SF in 77. I was also onboard when the big wave hit us during WestPac in 76. How many other times did the Wabash get "Bashed"?
