About this title


My son Jeff was looking for anything pertaining to my ship, USS Polaris, on the Internet. He came across Korean War Veterans. Then, he picked out "Navy," and then "Ship reunions." I didn't know until 1999 that the Polaris held a reunion each year. It's not a large group, but we've bonded like family. We look forward to meeting for the reunion held each year in a different U.S. city. In this group, I want to give special thanks to "Bill" Scott and Lee Nunez for the hours they put into keeping these reunions running smoothly. Anyone who served aboard the Polaris, World War II through its 1957 when it was decommissioned, is welcomed to our reunion. http: // Sayonara to all the little farms with their neat, little vegetable gardens and rice patties, the familiar "chug-chug" of the fishing boats, the tunes of "China Night" and "Kum-Kum Monsume," and the shy, little children who don't know what to make of Americans. Sayonara to the beautiful scenery created by trees with their lacy leaves in different shades of green, and the light, drifting snow flurries in winter.

About the Author:

I grew up through the depression years in a tiny town in Marin County near Fairfax, California. In 1941, my family moved to San Rafael where I attended San Rafael High School. The Korean War began, and I enlisted in the Navy on January 15, 1951. After discharge, I worked the balance of my life in the wholesale produce business. I married and had three children, settling down in the peninsula area south of San Francisco. No longer married, I live in Menlo Park, California. Aboard ship, we often said, "We should write a book about all this!" After over 50 years, I have done just that! Author, Jim Blagg
