I reported aboard NAS Chase Field in January of 1990. Became the manager of the auto service center/boating and camping. Knew this was my last duty station. I turned the lights out February of 1993 with everyone else that remained. It was a "trip" to say the least.

I was a member of VT 25. I arrived in Jan 1968 and was transferred to sea duty in July of 69. Funny it was a relatively short stay, but it seemed so long at the time. I have been back once and hardly recognized the town of Beeville. It certainly has grown. Mark Webb has been involved in organizing  the "All Hands" reunions and I salute his work. I was not able to attend, but a few of my friends were and they said it was great. I enjoy the Chase Field web pages and the pics. Look forward to hearing from the many friends I made in Texas and will pass the word of this website along to those here and in Jersey, NY, and Pa.
