Photo Galleries

The photographs in this section have been supplied by the below listed shipmates and used with their permission. The exception to this is the photos from Gordon L. Masse who took his photos from the USS Mars as the Jerome County came alongside during a replenishment at sea. These photos have been copyrighted by Mr. Masse and are used with his permission. Some of the photos have also been downloaded from various web sites.

Any mistakes in the names of shipmates or locations are purely accidental and are most likely caused by the loss of memory as we all approach our “golden years”. We apologize for any mistakes and will correct them as soon as we are notified. We also hope that shipmates who recognize either an unnamed shipmate or location will advise us of the correct names so that we can add them to this collection.

We appreciate the efforts of all of our shipmates who have searched through dusty attics and garages and opened a multitude of cardboard boxes to find these photos and then taken the time and expense to have them converted into a digital format so that they could be used both on this site and the DVDs we have produced so far. We hope that as this web site becomes more well known we will establish contact with more shipmates who may also have material that can be added to this site. A special thanks goes to Michael Giberson who was a signalman on the Jerome in the mid-sixties. Mike’s skill with the Photo Shop program and his willingness to spend long hours on his computer have helped clarify and define our photos which had deteriorated somewhat with the passage of time.
