|Message||I'm looking for anyone who knew my dad, RMCS Glenn Cook. Stationed at Gitmo 1977-1980-- Cheltenham, MD 1981-1982--NOB, Little Creek, Oceana and Dam Neck, VA 1983-1993. These are the dates and places the best that I can recall. I'm especially looking for someone me and my sister called "Roger the Turkey". He was stationed in Cuba the same time as us and was a good friend to my dad and our family. The last time I remember seeing him was around 1985 when he visited us in Va Beach. He was great at building forts with couch cushions. Dad has since passed away and my mom can't remember Roger's last name. Even if you aren't Roger the Turkey and remember stories about my dad, I'd love to hear them. [email protected]|

FM NAVCOMMSTA YOKOSUKA JA
TO NAVTELSYSIC CHELTENHAM MD
Ha! Remember this stuff?
...I was kinda a young knucklehead back then but, eventually, I grew up and I guess you could say I got serious. Suppose we've all been there to some degree. Anyway, got out and started testing AUTODIN terminals (RIXT, SRT, MDT, etc.) and installing them at all the COMMSTA's around the world, and a few ships too. Missing all of my NAVCOMMSTA Yokosuka JA friends from 77-79, and so many of the RMs I met traveling around. Would love to hear how you're doing. I hope you're doing well. God bless you all.
