Received emails this morning (sent yesterday) from Bill McCamy & Craig Vosseteig:
Seawolf Raymond Melvin WIKSTROM, LTJG, Det 1, 10/14/1969 to 10/1/1970.
CAPT WIKSTROM passed away 5/20/20 from complications due to Parkinson's and a massive stroke.
He gallantly fought for 6 months but in the end he lost.
When I arrived on Det 1, Ray was a FTL, and a good one he was. No doubt many SEALS and Riverine sailors made it home because of his tactics . Reports of him while he was a CO in the HSL community say he was a great CO ---- I guess we "E's" trained him well !! Rest in Peace Seawolf !
