    This website deals with my travels in the Pacific in the US Navy 1961-1965. My son Rick did a lot of the work to put together this website, and it was originally his idea, which is where the title Dads Travels, comes from.


 During my tour in the Navy I worked as a photographer, an interest I continue to pursue to this day. Being a photographer gave me the chance to document a lot of my experiences, something not every-one  in the Navy is lucky enough to have. 


      My hope is that this website brings back long forgotten memories for those who were there   or  give  viewers who weren't a chance to see what Pacific- Asia and the US Navy looked like almost  50 years ago.    Rich Searle
