Happy Birthday Captain!
Imagine my surprise when I received the wonderful comments from my crew, other shipmates and friends on my 90th birthday. It was such an honor to be remembered by all of you. I have often said that this was the best damn crew ever. I am also honored to have made more friendships and associations through the USS Floyd B. Parks association. I wish you could all have been here to help me celebrate my birthday. Thank you for your kind expression. Be assured though we may not see each other many times again you will always be in my heart. My good fortune and privilege of commanding USS Floyd B. Parks shall always remain as the highlight of my naval service.......... Eugene J. Erner, CO of the USS Floyd B. Parks (DD-884)
