I was attached to Sub Base from 1984-1988 working out of the periscope shop 35A . modified a duce and half to carry a pare of periscopes.
Stationed at Subase from Sept 81 - May 83 in 31A. Met my wife there she was in the repair division office, YN3 Shannon, still married, almost 31 years. Went back with the kids a few years ago and where 31A was across from the Subase Chapel is a parking lot, good memories!
I was stationed at the Steam Torpedo Shop from February 1963 to June 1965 when as a TM2 I was transferred to JR Craig DD 885 then operating with TF 77 South Vietnam. I visited the Sub Base in 1995 and the old shop was still there but no longer a torpedo shop. The torpedo was still out front but the current occupants did not know why. I retired in 2005 as a full colonel US Army.
I was stationed at the Officer's Quarters from Oct. 75 until April 76 and then ended up in Special Services working in the Auto, Ceramic, Wood Shop and finally Day Care. I married a boomer from the Roosevelt Blue Crew and had our oldest daughter in Sept. 77. We finally left in Nov 75 to go to Subbase, Groton, CT where I was a Barracks Manager and Billeting PO until I left in Nov 79.
I was stationed at Subase from Oct. 1978 - Oct. 1980. Spent about 6 months in the Rubber and Plastics Shop and the remainder in the Outside Electrical Shop. Great duty and great shipmates.
