CGC Jarvis stories

November 4, 2018

From (former FA) Bill Sewell:  "As a boot FA I didn't have a lot real responsibilities to the actual repairs. My main GC station, if I remember correctly [and I may not], was back in the aft damage control team. Don't remember who all was in it. I spent some time making sure the P250 pumps kept running. But, from the beginning---I remember waking up in the middle of the night with a sense that something was going on but had no idea what. I don't remember if I heard the mains starting or if they were already running, but I knew they were running. Didn't think a lot about it, but soon felt the ship hit something, then GC sounding and everybody beat feet for their GC stations. Mine was aft, and not directly involved with the engine room. Soon we all knew what had happened. I helped getting several P250 pumps up and running and then maintaining them."
