The picture of the Admin Building is very familiar. I worked in the Naval Station Personnel Office, which was to the left as you came through the main entrance on the first floor. The Radio Shack was next to the Personnel Office. I used to participate in the raising and lowering of the flag that is in the picture. I was there in 1960-62.
White Hat Club 1964. This was for the enlisted personal that were on ships. There was an 18 wheeler truck rebuilt as a bus that carried them back and forth from the docks to the club. On the base, we used to call it the "cattle car".
Rear Admiral John D. Bulkeley posing in front of the new water plant, sometime mid/late 1965.
This is one of two houses that we got moved to after we got thrown out of the Bay Hill Barracks for being too rowdy. We were working very long hour and would come back to the barracks at midnight or later and not want to sleep…
Admin Building, Admin Hill. This was taken from our back yard sometime in late 1964.
Edward Staples, if you are planning to attend our 2013 reunion in Chattanooga, please register soon. You can obtain details about the deadline at www.gitmobay.org.
John Kellett I missed your reply to my post some time back, Sorry. I might look into a reunion at some point that sounds fun. Thanks
It would be great if I get to meet you in October. Enjoy the summer, Gary!
John, I see you were at Willow Grove. When I went off active duty in '66, I joined the reserves in Buffalo. I transferred to Navel Air because the week-end warriors worked better than going every Wednesday. We used to fly S2's to Willow Grove. I went there several times for schools. I remember sitting in the "19th Hole" a bit. The last class I went to there, I was the only enlisted person in the class. It proved to be an interesting couple of weeks. I'll look at October. I've been gone more than home for the last two years. -- Gary
Gary, I see that you live in SC. Why don't you try to join us for this year's GITMO reunion in Chattanooga.
