I was stationed in Rota from 1974-77 at the Naval Communications Station. It was my all time favorite tour of duty.

I arrived in Naval Station Rota, on my 21st birthday back in 1982. I was attached to Fleet Ocean Surveillance Information Facility (FOSIF) which was located in the "Bull Ring" Had a great time there... one of my favorite duty stations with a lot of great shipmates.

I was deployed to Rota in 1981 with VP-26 then in 1991 I spent a week there waiting for someone to find my ship so they could fly me out to it. It was great in '81 but being in TPU in '91 sucked. They made you muster twice a day and sent E5 and below off to work somewher. I was an E6 by then so I didn't get put to work. Still sucked having to muster twice a day.

Stationed in Rota for 2 years, 1979 to 1981, with VQ-2. Loved it very much.
