I attended ADJ A school and TD A school training here and I learned a lot about jet mechanics and electronic training to become a TD.  I attended the TD A school as a ADJ-2 and it was a proud moment when graduating I became a TD-2. Being a fleet sailor I didn't march in formation and was tasked with marching my group to school every day. I soon assigned one of the Waves to march the group and the other E-4 and myself followed the formation in step of course. the Wave I picked was always the same person but nobody complained .

Stationes @ NAS Memphis 8/1966-1/1967 as a DN @ the Dental Clinic. Traded duty stations with another WAVE whose husband was in Memphis; served the rest of my enlistment @ NAS Pensacola. Discharged in 12/1968 as a DT2. Do any of you in Memphis in 1966 remember when there was an arsonist who burned down the EM club, the PX & tried burning down the stables??

Yeah Thomas I remember Mess cooking in the Marine Galley.  I was there from Mid-October 1960 through the 1st week of January 1961.  I had checked in on a weekend which I learned was how they assigned new personnel to the Galleys.

I never checked in anywhere on the weekends or Fridays after that.

When I was there the galley had two Marine serving lines and one line for serving Navy ship's company personnel and I was assigned to the Navy line.  Still not a lot of fun.  Long work hours and short breaks.  I had some buddies that worked in the scullery and I was sure glad to be on the serving line.

Spent 2 years at NATTC 1961, 62,63. Permanent personal. Went through all pre schools and then the ADJ school. Was at the ADJ school working out on the line for about a year and a half. Worked on all of the equipment. Jets, Recips and helicopters. Great place.

"A" school (AME) at NATTC Millington in late 69 after Great Lakes basic. I remember the gym and whirlpools and saunas. It was a huge old wooden structure. Not sure if there was a pool. Heard that it burned down later. Had some good memories working out there. Would enjoy seeing some old photos of the base.
