ETERNAL DEPLOYMENT

This Members SpotLight page highlights a particular association member and shares their memories while stationed aboard. 

I reached out to Doc Mundling (one of our more recent Concord sailors) and asked her about her time on board and thoughts. It's always good to look back at Concords early history, but also good to get a more current look at our ship as well. Pamela was a key player while on Concord and was a key part of Concord's de-commissioning. Enjoy her input below, and thanks Pamela for your commitment and loyalty to our association.

A RECENT SELFIE

I (Web dude) wrote HMC and told her I needed pic's. I like her comment below 

"I was just about to give up and send a photo from my last re-up in GTMO  when I found the one I want to be remembered by (pink coffee cup in hand to) This was taken the morning we pulled in after our final USS Medcruise in April of 1992.   I’m helping flush out our fresh water lines".

5. What is your fondest memory of Concord:

>  Watching HM2 Dean Antel, HM3 Stan Blisset, and DT3 Padrica Williams receive their ESWS pins

6. What is your worst memory of Concord:

>  That afternoon in December 1991 when we hit our top-over point.  Several people got injured (fortunately none serious), thousands of $$$ in inventory was destroyed, a poorly secured fork-lift went flying across the cargo deck and almost took out DCC Reece.  We didn’t stop bouncing and tipping until after sun-up the next morning. 

 7. Any additional thoughts / memories i.e. decommissioning Concord etc.:

>  Was a great ship to get my feet wet on.  Made some good friends and got stretched professionally and personally.  Wouldn’t trade it for anything. 

>  The Decommissioning and transfer to Military Sea Command was sad even though we were all off to new adventures.
