USS Askari ARL-30 Guestbook





Comments:
Hello my Dad served on this ship according to his discharge papers but I don't see his name in the shipmates list. Best I can tell it looks like he served from 1950 - 1952 and I know he was in the Korean War and I also know he did spend time in Japan because he brought my Mom Japanese souviniers. His name is James Burns Schmatz. he has passed away now, I just wondered if there was any information out there about his time on this ship. If anyone knew my Dad I would LOVE to hear from you!

I'm just doing a little research on my dad's 36 year naval career including tours in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. He always had a special place in his heart for the USS Askari as I believe he was the recommissioning officer in 1966; Lt.Commander John F. Campbell. After starting as a signalman on the USS Chicago in WWII, he retired in San Diego as a Commander and died of pancreatic cancer in 1994. I'm the oldest of his 3 kids and researching for his 2 grandsons (he didn't get to meet them, but his wife, Carolyn, has made sure that they're both very, very proud of his service). Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

Grateful for everyone's service to our country. My Papaw, Walter Knight, served proudly for 30 years. He retired as CO of the Askari. I grew up hearing many exciting Navy stories. It was a huge part of his life. He talked about it until the day he died.
