Radioman "A" School Bainbridge MD, Class 8A 1965
1965 -67 U.S.S. William M. Wood, DD-715, RMSN with CCDL Speedkey Cert.
Operated K1RNA/MM/KG4/KV4/KP4 and ran phone patches galore. Made RM3
and two Med cruises. Had CONDESRON 36 flag aboard and 15 RM's went
Port & Starboard. BAD NEWS! Flag RMC would change xmtrs & rcvrs on
the patch panel when we wern't looking. Ships RM's caught flack for his
handy work! (until we caught him at it). Excellent radio crew. The best
1967 - 68 U.S.S. Henley, DD-762, Reserve can. Made RM2 after a good ORI.
Three RM's cadre crew. One RMC, one RM2 (me) and 1 RM3. A/C in
radio shack was a screen door (HONEST!). One weekend a month at sea.
Two weeks at sea once a year. It was tough but sombody had to do it (HI).
1968 - Got a FLASH msg from CIVLANT. No more FTG GITMO! No more
Naples! No more Texas Bar, New York Bar, etc. etc. etc.
