Navy Souvenirs and Photos from Jim Brannen  -  Page 1 of 2

 

Here is a shot of Okanagan fin top in the 70's. I am the " tourist" on the bridge. My name is Jim Brannen...brother of Davy Brannen. I was a Stoker in boats from 1970 to 1984. Left as a C2. Best years of my Naval career. Served from 1962 til 1995. I sailed in Onondaga for 8 straight years and she was my favorite. They called her the no boat but she accomplished a lot...especially being where she is now.... Attached are some pics I have of Onondaga....a couple are personal shots. Use them if you wish.....
