I don't know how you can get in contact with him for certain. The
Ticonderoga is CG 47 (Guided Missile Crusier #47) and you may be able
to contact their homeport.
I found this online:
How to locate a shipmate or family member?
The Navy's World Wide Locator is a service established to find the
present duty station of active duty personnel, and is for official
business use only. Family members, active duty personnel and Navy
retirees may also use this system. To do so, you must have the
service member's full name, Social Security number, grade or rank,
and, if possible, last known duty station. Write to:
World Wide Locator
Bureau of Naval Personnel
5720 Integrity Drive
Millington, TN 38055-3120
or call: 1-877-414-535
Looks to be a site for the support of military families, and includes a
link on the side for locating people.
Hope this helps,
