Former Providence sailor
still on duty!
CWO5 (MTS) Gary O. Suter
Beachmaster Unit Two
I had the pleasure of
meeting Warrant Officer Suter and his lovely wife on his
visit to San Diego. Suter is probably one of the last active
duty sailors left that served aboard Providence. Suter was
17 years old when he joined the Navy and Providence was
his first ship. Captain McWethy was the CO during his time
aboard Providence. He plans to retire in a few years.
Here are a few photos
that I took on his visit.
