|119k||Summer 1950: "I sailed as a Sea Scout on Snyder from the Brooklyn Navy Yard to Bermuda and back. Quite an experience for a 14 year old. We were treated as regular crew members. We got to conn the ship, fire the 20mm's, roll off the depth charges, and peel potatoes. We were accompanied by USS Kyne (DE 744). While moored alongside Kyne in Bermuda, a deck washdown resulted in an all out firehose water fight between the ships. This ended abruptly when someone trained his hose on Kynes' flying bridge. I've often wondered how many kids got to go on these training cruises. Upon our return, we were presented with an 8x10 of the ship."||Russ Glindmyer|
|102k||April 1951: off New York City - The funnel has been painted differently, probably in anti-corrosive undercoat, but the ship is otherwise in peacetime haze gray. She
differs little from wartime form except for the addition of extra radio aerials on mast.
