This is such a great web sight. I think we should form a naval aviation group with a lot of the same interest, of course any shipmate could join in no matter what their rate bad or good idea Walt williams

Served from 1978 to 1999 and loved almost every moment of it!

LOL I worked for Karl Holland. My time at NSSF I worked for two Senior Chiefs - Tommy Willman and Thomas (I think) Williamson and of course the Master Beast Holland.

I was also initiated on the hill. I retired in 89 from the Medical Research Lab  and with the demise of the old club just stopped going on the base. Did you relieve Carl Holland at NSSF?

I was initated in that club on the hill, loved going there on Thursday nights for the steam ship round and shrimp. Hanging out in that small bar on Sundays. I came back in 88 and they turned the "goat locker" into a pizza place and the Navy wonders why their sailors are fat! Just like at one time the EM club served meals and they changed to just sandwiches and there was the cafeteria in Dealy Center that became Burger King. Then the brass wonders why sailors are not slim trim and racey - go figure. :)

I was only in Sharkey's once, after I retired. 20 years on Sub Base Groton and spent my time at the CPO Club on the hill. Miss those days of screwing off but not the drills and other BS.

Retired in 1988 as a Chief Hospital Corpsman.  Retired from USS Shenandoah AD44 homeported in Norfolk, Virginia.  Enjoyed all my 20+ years in the Navy; most notably a 3 year tour of duty in Idaho Falls, Idaho with Naval Administrative Unit which provided support for Naval Nuclear Power Training Unit.
