I went to HM School in Great Lakes Illinois .. March-August 1972. We had a gang . that had good times there at the Rathskeller and where the drinking age was 18 in Kenosha at Hardman’s and another bar that treated Navy guys well and in Racine too. We rarely (once) went to the Enlisted Club on mainside GLNTC. Although I did visit my boot camp buddy Barry Moffett on mainside a number of times.
First station was Philly Naval Hospital .. attended Pharmacy Tech “C” School there and assisted with Navy POW’s return. Also worked at PNSY dispensary pharmacy for six months.
Transferred to Mechanicsburg PA Ships Parts Control Center (now NAVSUP WSS) to run they pharmacy for final 14 months. Read a lot of books!!

I WAS STATIONED AT NAVHOSPBREMWASH MARCH - OCTOBER 1968 THEN ON TO VIETNAM. I WAS ON WARD N WHILE IN BREMERTON AND MARY BOEHME AND I BECAME GOOD FRIENDS AS A RESULT OF WORKING TOGETHER ON THE NIGHT SHIFT. SHE WAS MY MORAL SUPPORT WHILE I WAS IN VIETNAM. WE STAYED IN TOUCH AFTERWARDS FOR SEVERAL YEARS THEN LOST CONTACT. I REMEMBER CAPT. BROWN. SCOTT MCCREEDY, LCDR, WAS WARD N MEDICAL OFFICER. WHILE I WAS
VISITING A FRIEND FROM BREMERTON IN KALISPELL, MT, HE GAVE ME A SURPRISE MEETING WITH DR. MCCREEDY AT THE HOSPITAL THERE. THIS WAS IN 1991. IT IS NICE TO HEAR FROM THOSE FROM MY NAVY DAYS.

Hi Fred, The HMCS Dahlke I knew was William (Bill) Dahlke.
I recall the name of Captain Hunter during my time at HCS San Diego but, don't remember if he was current or former CO at that time.
