Message Did Great Lakes in Aug. 1980, RM School San Diego Spring 1981, Then stationed on the USS O'Bannon DD-987, Went to Great Lakes as a Teletype Repairman, ended up working with SPAWAR as a you know what! Then sent to the USS San Diego as a platform during DS. Then did a couple of Reserve tours for SPAWAR in the 90's...Did not like my first reserve tour when I found out that the RM rate had been tossed, luckily I had enough TIR and a spot in SPAWAR that I got to keep my rating. Loved the fact that the newbys had to address me as RM1.
Loved working in the Shack. Flirting with the girls in Naples over the NAVMACS on the midwatch.
Stationed with a great group of Radioman over the years.
