This is awesome! I am delighted to find this site, and oh how the memories come flooding back. I have always treasured the time I spent on the Bowditch... the "unreal" Navy. I'd love to hear from Bob Lord, and others. I was sorry to learn of Jinks death, what of Chris?

Reported aboard OCUNIT 2 in the shipyard at Wallsend, England in early 1971 as a really "green" chief. I can't believe how young I was. Served on board until the shipyard at Norfolk, Va in the spring of 1972. Finished my career in the navy Jan 31 1984 after 22 years of active duty.

What a nice surprise to find this web site. I will find some photos and submit them for consideration. After traveling to Europe on the Michelson, I spent my professional career traveling to both Europe and Asia. What an exciting time this was for me..

Several years floating around in rusty bubbles. Southhampton, Falmouth, Rota, Barcelona, Subic Bay, Yokosuka, and others. Some of the best and most bizarre times in my life.
