The only enjoyable time I had at TI was when 2 of us were sent to polish the floor in the waves mess hall, when we were done the waves said stay a while and gave us cake and ice cream, then after noon chow they asked for us back for the rest of the day. Went on liberty in Frisco and a marine took us to their club call the Marine Memorial which was great. Was hit on every place I went by my self.

I was in transit at TI two  times once in 1966 on my way to Subic Bay and when I returned In 1968 to get discharged. I got to see San Fran for two weeks each time.

Jerald, I was RM3 in CommCenter winter of 70. Only there fore awhile and then on to Moroco. Remember being questioned when a message with my routing initials showed up in the newspaper concerning the US Marshals taking the indians off of the prison island (Alcatraz- sp). Had great experiences esp. with Wave I met and fell for. Alas, heart broken when we had to take our separate paths......

I was an RM1 with Commander Western Sea Frontier (COMWESTSEAFRON) 1968-1970. Working down in the basement. Lots of 12 on and 12 off while the Russian subs were being tracked.

I am looking for a patch or plaque for COMWESTSEAFRON), but have not been able to find one.

Any body know where I can find one? Or at least a good photo of one I have a couple of sources that make patches and might have some made.

I was put on guard duty at the TI brig while waiting for orders in 1954.

I fell asleep on the mid watch, Luckily i wasn't caught or i would probably ended up inside instead of outside.

I attended ET 'A' at TI '72. Enjoyed the location and spent my off duty time either in SF or exploring the area.

While I was at T.I. teaching ET-A school in the late 60's I also worked part time at the auto hobby shop in the evening. Everybody knew me as " Mac" . I drove an orange 57 Chevy hardtop. The shop manager was a retired MMC, and I don't remember his name. We just called him chief. I have some good memories of my tour at T.I.

  I was stationed at T.I. for a period of 2 years and I met the love of my life there! working as a lowley HM3 at the Dispensary, always thought that the Island was a magical placeto be stationed.except for the earthquakes. lookink out everyday towards SanFrancisco and seeing Alcatraz between us and SanFraciscio was Beautifull! olny bad part was the Brig.felt sorry for prisoners.
