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.

Jerry Humphries, I attended RMA school from Nov. 1968 to Apr. 1972. First duty station was FOCCPAC Kunia Hawaii ( the tunnel). Worked in the Joint Pacific Relay facility. Navy personnel lived on Wheeler air base or off base. Next duty station was aboard the USS LaSalle home ported in Norfolk, Va. but in dry dock in Philly at that time . I made one 4 week cruise  to GTMO and then back to dry dock in Portsmouth Va. I was discharged a few weeks before LaSalle was deployed to the mid-east in June of 72.

I went to Radioman "A" School in Bainbridge, MD from July of 1965 to January of 1966. Then I got transferred to NAVCOMSTAPHIL at San Miguel Philippines. I served at San Miguel from January of 1966 to July of 1968 where I worked in Relay. I worked with Jerald Terwilliger in the Relay department where we'd receive and send teletype messages to ships and shore installations, among other various other jobs. Nine months after my honorable discharge, I re-enlisted and served on the USS Cambria (APA36). Our ship and it's Mike boats played a small part in the movie "Patton" starring George C.

First..I would like to say it is great reading about all of your experiences in communications.  I went to RM"A" school in San Diego in 59. Then I was stationed on the USS McKean DDR784 during 1960. Made one westpac tour and got orders to go to NavcomFac Yokosuka (As an RMSN)  I was there for two days and then sent up the road to Naval Radio Receiving Facility Kami Seya, Japan, Stayed there from 1961-1963. Great Duty...Great Food..Great Liberty..Almost talked myself into making a career out of the Navy.

When I was in RM"A"  we had several Telemen going to school with us because they were phasing that out. Now I see, Morse Code is out and Telemen are back in with the new IT rating.  How time flies and things change.  I loved those days working  at NDT Kami Seya and I loved to  use the code...
