My father, Leonard Visotski served on the Oriskany as a radar operator. As a child, we had a dachshund named Schatzie, reported to be a puppy of the original, but I can't confirm that. I believe a shipmate, the late John Wall had the original dog.

After being honorably discharged from the Navy, he began a career in Law Enforcement, retiring in 1981 as Chief of Police for the Warren Twp., NJ Police Dept. As of November 2017, he lives in Basking Ridge, NJ and is in declining health.
