anyone co 210 1973
why is there no info. on companys back in 1974 &75
was there for OSVET trng in 80, really a breeze for prior service grunts,
I remember jack neely the 18 yr veteran who came in as a seaman, with a full chest of medals and hash marks down both arms, along with other green beret / seal ribbons, that was one cool dude, the oldest seaman ever I think there or in the navy as far as comeing in after being gone so long
I was there in September 1982 - October 1982 Company 267. Then I went directly to ATD...
The UCMJ was adopted in '55 ( or was ir '56) at any rate the " laying on of hands" was OFFICIALLY ENDED ( ? ) in '56,but I do remember the CC of our sister Company...639..gently applying his right foot to one of his SKINHEAD'S back-side,which seemd to work,because it kinda speeded him up enough to get him back in step....Talking about working off accumulated demerits....We were NOT allowed to WORK OFF our demerits;they stayed with us for our duration,and if we picked up fifteen demerits,for ANY reason,we were transferred to a Company known as ..800 BAKER...which consisted of misfits,and those who just could not adjust to boot camp life....Life was NOT easy for 800 Baker...
After being in the fleet for a few years,I thought it would be kinda nice to get SHORE DUTY back at GL/NTC,and HARRASS the SKINHEADS,and revive the rumor of the 6" SQUARE NEEDLE...remember THAT one?
