Edward Stewart- Exactly the same rate (EM2) Same length of service, etc. (Mike, ED and I meet in boot camp and stayed together our entire service time).. He worked for Solar Turbines in San Diego. Solar made the engines for the "LCSR" (Landing Craft Swimmers Recovery) that were assigned to BSU-1 in San Diego. They never really worked (jet engines on a boat for gods sake!), kept blowing reduction gears and impellers and fuel rings... Anyway, Ed went to work for Solar, eventually becoming a VP in Field Service. He passed away in 1995.

Ed had one tour in DaNang and one tour at our rework facility in Subic Bay.
