TRIBUTE TO SHIPMATE PAUL GREENE

Former USS Columbus crewman Bill Michalski has written another book titled Captain's Mast: A New Jersey Yankee in the Confederate Navy 1950-1954. From the back cover: How does a cocky 19-year old get out of the double grip of his stern Polish mother and his bosses at the curtain factory? If it's the Korean War era, he joins the service. As the USS Columbus tours the Mediterranean, the rebellious sailor from New Jersey enters the peculiar domain of the Southern petty officer, and the result is a saga of screwups, confrontation, growth, and transformation. Readers who came to know Bill Michalski as the Depression-era kid in the Poland on the Passaic will enjoy watching the boy become a man. Cost of the book is $18.95.
