I was at NavCommStaPhil from Sep 1969 to Sep 1971.  Because of my background as an instructor, graduate of RM B School, the Ops boss, LCDR Triptow assigned me to a training office.  I developed classes to review Basic Electronics, Math, etc.  I had learned fancy work aboard the USS Strong (DD758) (thanks of BM1 John Motes), so I inherited the "M" gang as well.  We tidied up the entrance to the "T" building and the grounds surrounding it.

After the fleetwide exams, I was called into the Ops Boss office and he told me I could go into any division I wanted to go to for doing a good job.  I selected TechControl and finished my tour at San Miguel learning the ins and outs of being a Tech Controller.  Did go to CommSysTech School at Cheltenham enroute the NavFac, Argentia, NFLD.

San Miguel was a great duty station.  I had been stationed with another RM1, Dan Mathews in TacRon 11.  We started riding motorcycles and then, racing them on the base.  We then got a CTCM, Bruce Bowden and others, and soon had about 25 racers.  We also ran at the beach on a flat track. Raced with Filipos in San Marelleno.  What a great duty station...

Ben Jackson, I completed Radioman "A" school in 1961 and was assigned to FOCCPAC Kunia Hawaii until I was discharged in 1964.  Often wonder about the wonderful people I worked with during that tour. I lived on Wheeler Field Airbase along with people in the Air Force and Army.
