Wishing everyone a Very Blessed, Healthy, Safe, Happy Christmas and New Year.

John (Admin),

Please send me an email and let me know how to get all the stuff I have to you so you can post it on the site. In the process of relocating from this frozen land (Texas) to someplace where it stays warm and doesn't rain often, maybe two or three times a year. Also has low humidity and the predominant color is Tan.

Thanks in advance,

Best Always,

I was a radio operator at NGR and copied many encrypted msgs from the Bowditch and the Dutton, but was unaware of their true names until many years later.

It was great duty with a lot of isolation, and a lot of sea time.

I had the honor and privilege to work with the wonderful crews of the Bowditch, Dutton, Hess (and Chauvenet and Wyman) while a NAVO rep from 1979 - 1983. I thank you so very much for bringing back some of my most wonderful memories of my youth with this website. I have compiled the dates, ship and imports I enjoyed while working for NAVO:
March - May 1980 Bowditch; Bermuda; Norfolk, VA; Richmond, VA
Nov - Dec 1980 Bowditch; Port Everglades, FL; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Port Canaveral, FL
June - Sept 1981 Dutton; Port Hueneme, CA; Seattle, WA; Port Hueneme, CA
Oct - Dec 1981 Bowditch; Rota, Spain; Lisbon, Portugal; Port Canaveral, FL
Mar - Jul 1982 Hess; Oakland, CA; Honolulu, HI; Portland, OR; Yokosuka, Japan
Dec '82 - May 1983 Bowditch; Cocoa Beach, FL; Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Canary Is, Spain.
I could not have asked for a better job out of college. I was the first female on the Chauvenet in April 1979 when I reported onboard in Subic Bay, Philippines - a LOT of firsts on that trip!!!
