I was one of Adm. Turner's Marine orderlies when he was Commander of the 2d Flt. Atlantic in 1974. He was the epitomy of an officer & a gentleman and the hardest working man I ever knew. He took a personal interest in and treated his subordinants with the utmost respect, kindness & consideration. I remember standing post at midnight in the middle of the Atlantic on the USS Albany when he brought us both ice cream. We sat at my post eating ice cream & talking about my family. That was only one memory of many but that was the kind of man he was when nobody was looking. Nothing but respect for one of the finest officers I've ever had the privilege to serve.
