Richard Welsh, RD-3 on USS Wilhoite DER-397, sent along photos from Deep Freeze 60-61. Richard included copies of newspaper articles from the Dunedin newspapers, and other memorabilia from his Deep Freeze experience. I noticed in the Wilhoite's crew roster was C.V. Schneider, RD-3, who was an RD-1 aboard USS Calcaterra during Deep Freeze 65-66.
