I am getting closer to finding out my company number. (lost my Rudder) It was between CO36 - C038. I was at Orlando from Nov. 79 - Jan 80. We called ourselves 'Bad Company' at sports weekend. Can't remember our CC's names but we had a chief that was kinda short but mean as hell (LOL) and a first class that was tall, lean and had flaming red hair and beard. He was the one we were really afraid of. :)
wish we could have sub groups here based on company name and year
I remember one night, or rather early morning, when they called a fire drill for our whole barracks building. So all of us ran out into the Company Street in our skivvies, all milling around, sleepy. Then while we were still out there, unorganized as-of-yet, the female barracks across from us conducted a fire drill as well. It was funny as hell watching them trying to sort everyone out. If I remember, it took the better part of an hour. The Sun was just starting to rise by the time our CC's had us all sorted out and at attention while they chewed us all out - after the Battalion CO had chewed the CC's on both sides of the street.
Attended Orlando in April 87-June87 was in K062 CPO Gaddis and Po Enrique looking for others believe brother companies were c114,c115,c116
There was no NTC in 1969 when I was in the initial Co. 077. The only guys that went to school instead of the fleet upon graduating were us Nukes and ET's. I went to IC "A" School in Great Lakes, then Nuclear Power School at Mare Island, and the S1W nuclear submarine prototype in Idaho. All this after being inducted in Los Angeles. I never saw San Diego as a sailor until I boarded the USS Enterprise in 1971.

Just missed you, I was there June/July 79 Co 134, PC1 Hall and MSC(Select) Curameng were my CC's.
