Great to see so many of you are staying in touch after all these years. I live in Westminster, CO and currently finishing my second career with the VA. Retired as a NCC in July 1991 after serving two tours in recruiting in San Antonio and here in the Denver area. God blessed me with two sons and a marriage that has lasted 41 years. Please call or come see me when you are in the Denver area. Mi Casa es su casa Amigos. My home is a Navy home and will always be. Sorry I haven't made any of the reunions but God willing I will someday before we are all called to be with our Lord. Met up with Gramps Vaughn in Marthas Vinyard a few years ago and had a great time. Maybe we can see each other again Shipmates. I served in the post office with Greg Faiola after a stint on deck force with Boat Tony Demars.

First time ever for me to board a Navy ship. I remeber getting a truckload of beer off of AVB-2. Had to climb down a hatch near the front doors into a dark, dank storage area. The beer was stacked from floor to ceiling (whatever the blackshoe terminology is)!
I spent my one and only night onboard a Navy ship as a radio man support our squadrons 24x7 flight excercises.
Good luck with your reunion!!

It's hot and dry here in JAX but not complaining, thankful for being in good health and looking forward to seeing all of you.
My adjustment to living alone has been slow but I'm pleased to say, I think I'm nearly normal now.
My very best to all of you; have a safe trip to DC. Chuck
