    I want to see the material you have on Ralph J. Ribble, our uncle.

    Anne – everything we have is here – . It’s on the menu item that drops down under Memoirs, Journals, and Letters. Also, click on the Video menu item.

    My father “James E. Nichols” (still living) was deployed to Bikini Atoll on the USS Cumberland as a Division Petty Officer. I’ll ask him the year and months of his deployment. I’ll search your site for pictures but was wondering if you have searchable list of names with dates?

    No, I’m afraid not. I keep intending to get the full ship’s roster and post it. I’ll move that up a bit higher on my “To do” list and hopefully get it added soon. Thank you for writing, and please pass along my deep appreciation for his service.
